Blood Borne Pathogen and Biohazardous Materials Training

Prior to Blood Borne Pathogen (BBP) or other Biohazardous Materials training, please read the following documents:

After reading the above documents, contact the CNSM Safety Office to arrange training. Depending on the nature of your work, you may be required to attend Bloodborne Pathogen Training which consists of a two hour slide presentation and discussion of the requirements set forth in the Bloodborne Pathogen Standard. The need for this level of training will be determined by Safety Office personnel.

If you work in a lab that generates biohazardous waste but you don't handle human blood or OPIM (e.g. a Microbiology lab), you will be asked to come to the Safety Office (Micro 006) to discuss safe work practices, waste handling and will be given a test on the reading material above.
