Bloodborne Pathogens

Bloodborne Pathogens are defined as pathogenic microorganisms present in blood that can cause disease in humans and can include hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Because of the hazards associated with these diseases, the St. Louis College of Pharmacy has implemented a Bloodborne Pathogens and Exposure Control Program to minimize risk to all community members.

About the Program

This program is fully compliant with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1030 “Occupational Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens”, and includes comprehensive training for students and employees, immunization tracking and exposure-reduction mechanisms.
