August Safety Meeting Topic – Bloodborne Pathogen (BBP)

The Monthly Safety Meeting topic for August is Bloodborne Pathogen (BBP) Awareness. Please share the attached Safety Spotlight with employees. Each month we will be sending out a 1-2-page Safety Spotlight handout on the upcoming monthly safety meeting topic. This handout should be shared with your Principals and Directors as a tool for conducting a brief 5-10 minute safety overview with all staff (this can be done during regular department meetings). Please remember to have a sign-in sheet each month for your training records.

The California Code of Regulations requires employers to have a written Exposure Control Plan which is designed to eliminate or minimize employee exposure to bloodborne pathogens. If you do not have a written Exposure Control Plan, please contact me for assistance.
