Bloodborne Pathogens

Bloodborne Pathogens Program

WesternU has established this program to prevent and/or minimize employee’s occupational exposure to blood and other potentially infectious materials. OSHA and Cal/OSHA states that the hepatitis B Virus vaccination shall be offered to all employees who may be occupationally exposed to blood or other potentially infectious materials, unless the employee has a previous HBV vaccination or unless antibody testing has revealed the employee is immune. OSHA and Cal/OSHA recommends those at risk be immunized against HBV.
