Model Plans and Programs for the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens and Hazard Communications Standards: OSHA Brochure #3186
Last Updated: 12/30/2009
The mission of the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) is to save lives, prevent injuries, and protect the health of America’s workers.
 
As part of the Department of Labor, OSHA promotes worker safety and health in every workplace in the United States. OSHA’S bloodborne pathogens standard protects employees who work in occupations where they are at risk of exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials.
 
OSHA’s hazard communication standard protects employees who may be exposed to hazardous chemicals. Both standards require employers to develop written documents to explain how they will implement each standard, provide training to employees, and protect the health and safety of their workers.
 
This publication includes a model exposure control plan to meet the requirements of the OSHA bloodborne pathogens standard and a model hazard communication program to meet the requirements of the hazard communication standard. The full text of these two OSHA standards, including the requirement for the written documents, is found in 29 CFR 1910.1030 and 29 CFR 1910.1200, respectively.
