Over five million workers in health care related fields are at risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens, such as the HIV virus and hepatitis B virus. Designed to meet the current OSHA training requirements, Bloodborne Pathogens was created for students and employees who have potential for occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials, and even has supplemental information on airborne pathogens such as tuberculosis. The Fifth Edition has been completely revised and updated to comply with the 2005 guidelines for cardiovascular resuscitation (CPR) and emergency cardiovascular care (ECC).
