F.8 Bloodborne Pathogens Exposure Control Policy


The University of Southern Indiana is dedicated to promoting a safe and healthy workplace. As a result of the need to address the issue of the potential hazards associated with bloodborne disease viruses (i.e. Human Immunodeficiency Virus, or the Hepatitis B Virus), the University has instituted an Exposure Control Program. This plan addresses the methods of compliance with OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.1030 through the use of institutional policies and standards of practice. These policies focus attention on reducing the risk of contracting a bloodborne pathogen while working at the University. Safety policies and procedures have been established which will protect employees from potential biological hazards.
