Live Webinar: Required OSHA Training for Immunizing Pharmacists

2020 OSHA Webinar – Bloodborne Pathogens

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Bloodborne Pathogens stan­dard was revised by the Needlestick Safety and Prevention Act of 2000 to require the use of  safer medical devices and to maintain an exposure control plan. Personnel who have the potential to be exposed to a bloodborne pathogen must meet the requirements of this standard, including annual live training, or risk facing fines. This includes pharmacists and others who administer immunizations, provide point-of-care testing involving blood or who are involved with handling sharps containers. OPA is offering a webinar format for pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and other employees to comply with this OSHA standard. The speaker will discuss potential bloodborne hazards, safer practices designed to reduce/avoid sharps injuries, and effective post-exposure procedures. This program will provide the opportunity for interactive questions.

If you administer immunizations and have not completed such a training within the last 12 months, now is your opportunity. The program fee is $45 and includes one hour (0.1 CEU) of CPE credit for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.

Complete details and registration are available HERE
