OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen Training for Drug Testing

To maintain compliance with OSHA training requirements, re-enroll in training yearly.

OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen Training for Collectors is a specialized self-paced course for collectors and alcohol testing technicians who are handling specimens for drug and alcohol testing. The course was adapted from our main bloodborne training courses and will take about 1-hour to complete and brings awareness to the risks of occupational exposure inherent to this line of work and is created to align with both initial and recurrent training, in conjunction with your healthcare facility's Exposure Control Plan (ECP).

Training provides learners with the knowledge to respond effectively to incidents like accidental spills of potentially infected specimens, and how to mitigate risks associated with bloodborne pathogens such as HIV and Hepatitis, and be prepared for actions to take in case of exposure. Enhance your safety and others around you with our dedicated training.

U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards mandate that employers must conduct annual training for any employee subject to potential occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens through urine specimen collection. Specimen collectors who complete bloodborne pathogen training will develop an understanding of risks, preventative, and remedial measures for potential occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens.

When provided in conjunction with an appropriate Exposure Control Plan (ECP), this course complies with the training requirements of OSHA Standard 1910.1030(g)(2)(vii). The class is designed for all manner of medical staff that perform urine specimen collection in a healthcare facility, testing site, and/or other facility that conduct drug testing.

Students learn at their own pace with our online training program that uses videos, documents, and resources and have an opportunity for interactive questions and answers throughout the program. Also included are downloadable materials featuring relevant OSHA regulations. A certificate of completion can be printed immediately after passing the online exam.
