Do You Need a Bloodborne Pathogens Program? Here’s the Straight Answer

Friday, October 14th, 2011

KPA’s latest project, the Bloodborne Pathogens Quiz, helps dealerships and automotive service centers decide if a bloodborne pathogens program is right for their facility. The online self-assessment tool takes into account all federal regulatory compliance mandates, interpretations, and clarifications around employer responsibilities to provide bloodborne pathogen training for their employees.

At the end of the quiz, there is an immediate result. Participants either receive a printable certificate documenting that a program is not necessary, or they are directed to information about getting a bloodborn pathogens program.

The only limitation for this self-assessment tool is that it only takes into account federal guidelines, so dealerships and automotive service centers in states where state-level regulatory agencies act independently form OSHA may still need to consult occupational safety professionals, or research state guidelines about bloodborne pathogen programs.
