Bloodborne diseases are a serious concern in the United States. "Hepatitis B" infects over 70,000 people annually, and has over one million "carriers" in the U.S. The HIV virus, which usually leads to AIDS, currently infects millions of people. Because of the increasing problems with these diseases, in 1991 OSHA passed a "Bloodborne Pathogens" regulation. Marcom's training products on "Bloodborne Pathogens in Healthcare Facilities" incorporating the latest medial language and needlestick guidelines have been specifically created to assist facilities in fulfilling the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard's (29 CFR Part 1910.1030) training requirements. Topics covered in these products include: Epidemiology and symptoms of bloodborne diseases, Modes by which bloodborne disease is transmitted, The Exposure Control Plan, Recognition of exposure situations, Practices to prevent exposure, HBV vaccination, Emergency procedures, Signs and labels, Selection and use of personal protective equipment and more. Marcom's Regulatory Compliance Manuals help facilities to understand and comply with OSHA regulations. The manuals review the regulations and their compliance requirements, as well as provide materials that are necessary to help meet those requirements. Manuals include: The background of the regulation, Major compliance requirements, The "fill-in-the-blank" written compliance program, A glossary of terms, Forms and procedures and more.
