Bloodborne Pathogen Training for Urine Specimen Collectors

Derived from OSHA regulations regarding bloodborne pathogens, this 1-hour online course covers the risk of occupational exposure specific to urine specimen collection. It is designed to comply with this training standard for both initial and recurrent training in conjunction with a healthcare facility’s Exposure Control Plan (ECP).

As a urine specimen collector for workplace drug tests, you handle urine specimens on a daily basis. Today, you tripped and accidentally spilled a urine specimen which contained a substantial amount of blood on yourself and a coworker with an open wound. Are you or the coworker at risk for contracting a bloodborne pathogen such as HIV or Hepatitis? If so, do you know what to do in the event of an exposure?
