About This COurse

This online Bloodborne Pathogens training course helps ensure you or your colleagues know how to stay safe where human blood could be present. The term bloodborne pathogens (BBPs) refers to a range of bloodborne infections that can cause harm, the most common infections are Hepatitis B, C and HIV. This course is designed for everyone who on occasion, works in the vicinity of blood spills and everyone who works with needles must receive training and information so they understand how to keep themselves and others safe. It is vital to develop knowledge and understanding of the risks of bloodborne pathogens and how to implement the necessary precautions to keep yourself and others safe, including proper clean-up methods. Remember, it is important to treat all blood and other potentially infectious materials (OPIMs) as if they contain potentially harmful bloodborne pathogens that can cause disease.

Upon completion of this online Bloodborne Pathogens training course, learners will know What BBPs are, will be able to recognise symptoms of hepatitis B, hepatitis C and the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and also how bloodborne pathogens are transmitted. You will also learn about Safe handling procedures for blood and other OPIM and emergency procedures for blood or OPIM exposure. By following some simple personal hygiene procedures, you can reduce your exposure to BBPs. For example, learning to cover all of your open cuts and skin abrasions to prevent contact with infectious material. This measure effectively eliminates one of the main routes of entry. Another simple and effective example would be washing your hands with soap and running water frequently. Doing so is one of the most important and easiest measures you can take to prevent BBP transmission. (It is best to use soft, antibacterial soap if possible because harsh, abrasive soaps can open fragile scabs and sores).

This course is ideal for people may believe that bloodborne pathogen clean-up is only necessary in medical settings, but this is not the case.Wherever human blood is spilled, bloodborne pathogens can be present. This course is relevant for anyone who, however occasionally, uses needles or works in the vicinity of spilt blood; examples include: emergency services, medical staff, tattoo artists, lab technicians, cleaners. At the end of the training, if learners successfully demonstrate their understanding of course content, they will receive a fully accredited and certified certificate.
