Resource Review: Bloodborne Pathogen Training Refresher (EHS 0738)

This bloodborne pathogen (BBP) training was developed for those at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) who had completed the following training:
  • Bloodborne Pathogen for Researchers – EHS 735
  • Biosafety for Researchers – EHS 739
  • Hepatitis B Medical Surveillance – EHS 0745
This is an OSAH required annual training for workers who have potential for occupational exposure to BBPs in the course of their work. The goal of the course is to assure the worker can understand the potential risk to exposure to bloodborne pathogens and the methods used to control exposure in the course of their work at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
