Environmental Health and Safety - Bloodborne Pathogens

Bloodborne Pathogens

Some WKU employees may be exposed to bloodborne pathogens or other potential infectious materials due to their job tasks or duties.  Bloodborne pathogens are microorganisms present in human blood or other bodily fluids that can cause diseases.  These pathogens include hepatitis B, hepatitis C, or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).  To minimize the risk of exposure, employees must be trained in the recognition of and measures to avoid contamination by blood and other infectious bodily fluids.  Anyone who could be "reasonably anticipated" to contact these materials as a result of performing their job duties should participate in this training annually.
