OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens (BBP) Training

Federal law requires that each occupationally exposed employee complete bloodborne pathogen (BBP) training annually. Researchers who use primary human materials, components and products made from human blood, human cell lines or culture media or other solutions containing pathogens that are present in blood and capable of causing disease in humans are considered occupationally exposed. Training will include protective measures to be taken to minimize the risk of occupational exposure. OSHA requires that there be an opportunity for interactive questions and answers with the trainer, so a classroom session is held every other week in all campuses.

TEHS offers this training on all campuses throughout the year as a service to our employees. We encourage you to identify any of your department staff that may need this training and see to it that they attend an upcoming session.

Class size is limited and certificates of attendance will be provided at the end of each session; Registration is required. Please contact Tufts EHS (ehs-training@tufts.edu) to reserve your spot.
