NSC’s “Bloodborne Pathogens in First Response Environments” Interactive CD-ROM Course has been specifically created to assist facilities in fulfilling the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard’s (29 CFR Part 1910.1030) training requirements. Bloodborne diseases are a serious concern in the United States. “Hepatitis B” infects over 70,000 people annually, and has over one million “carriers” in the U. S. The HIV virus, which usually leads to AIDS, currently infects over one million people. Because of the increasing problems with these diseases, in 1991 OSHA passed a “Bloodborne Pathogens” regulation. Areas covered in the course include the contents of the standard, epidemiology and symptoms of bloodborne diseases, modes by which bloodborne diseases are transmitted, the exposure control plan, recognition of exposure situations, practices to prevent exposure, HBV vaccine, emergency procedures, signs and labels, selection and use of personal protective equipment, and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood… and retained. Also designed with the training manager in mind, all courses in the Interactive CD-ROM Training Library include a learning management system (at no additional cost). Using this system, trainers can set up “Pre” and “Post” tests… establish log-in procedures… even define and set up curriculum for various job classes. The system also collects and organizes employee performance information through a powerful relational database, which can generate a number of record-keeping and tracking reports… and has a database “import/export” feature, which allows information to be transferred to and from an external database (such as a company’s personnel database). The course is one of over 100 titles currently available in the Interactive CD-ROM Training Library.
