Bloodborne Pathogens Training
Annual Refresher Online Training Documentation
Documentation of online training is obtained by taking a test once you've completed the presentation and your certificate will be sent to you by email. After completing the test, a copy of that test will be emailed to EH&S. We will review the test and will send you a certificate of completion via email. You must make a 100% on the test.

Training requirements for personnel working with blood and blood products
OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (29 CFR 1910.1030 ) require that all employees who work with potentially infectious materials attend bloodborne pathogens training annually. Personnel working with biological agents are required to attend a training class within 30 days of hire. In addition to providing useful information regarding exposure to biological agents, the training classes offer very useful information regarding what Personal Protective Equipment to wear, proper biological waste disposal, and what to do in the event of an emergency.
Annual Refresher Training
Annual refresher training is required for all personnel exposed to potentially infectious materials and bloodborne pathogens
The below dates are for Bloodborne Pathogen (BBP) training. If these dates are not convenient, you can attend "Basic Clinical and Laboratory Safety Training" which also includes bloodborne pathogen training (shipping training not included) which is offered monthly at various locations in the CYF, SON, and SOD buildings.
It is important that certificates be kept by personnel attending the training class in the event that documentation is required by either UTHealth safety personnel, a regulatory agency, or a future employer. Certificates should be located in your main laboratory.
*If you would like to schedule a class or require special accommodations especially for your laboratory or department, please contact us at (713) 500-8170 and we will be happy to assist your needs.
