OSHA Annual Retraining for Medical Facilities

The OSHA Annual Retraining for Medical Facilities course satisfies OSHA’s annual bloodborne pathogens retraining requirements for healthcare employees exposed to this hazard. It covers safety best practices on topics including biohazardous waste, vaccinations, decontaminating equipment, working with hazardous chemicals, and more. Participants will be able to identify potentially infectious materials, protect themselves from hazardous chemicals, and describe how their organization’s OSHA program helps prevent exposure to safety hazards. The course also meets GHS awareness requirements by covering Safety Data Sheets, pictograms, and the new labeling systems.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Respond to smoke or fire in your work area.
  • How your organization works to prevent exposures to bloodborne pathogens, such as HIV, HBC, and HBV.
  • What to do if exposed to blood or other potentially infectious material.
  • Ensure that engineering controls, safe work practice controls, and personal protective equipment (PPE) are in place.
  • Locate the OSHA safety manual.
  • Identify which chemicals are hazardous and how you can protect yourself from exposure.
  • Demonstrate how to use labels and Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)/Safety Data Sheets (SDS) to protect yourself from hazardous chemicals.
