|The Department of Technical
and Adult Education created, in 1993, a Blood and Airborne Pathogens
Program which meets the requirements of the U.S Department of Labor;
Occupational Health and Safety Administration 29 CFR 1910.1030
Bloodborne Pathogens Standard and the 29 CFR
1910.1035 Occupational Exposure to Tuberculosis Proposed Rule The
program is designed minimize or prevent occupational exposure to both
blood and airborne pathogens, as well as other potentially infectious body
materials, in covered occupational education programs.
Each of the 33 State Technical Colleges operates the program under a college Exposure Control Plan that incorporates both the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.1030 and the Centers for Disease and Prevention (CDC) Guidelines for Preventing the Transmission of M. Tuberculosis in Health-Care Facilities-1994.
The State Technical Colleges have identified several classifications of faculty members and students who have the potential for exposure in lab, clinical or other occupational-based instruction (OBI) settings. Examples include faculty and students in Health Technologies, EMS, Public Safety and Personal Service Program areas. An exposure determination is made for individual programs and courses.
If you need additional information concerning exposure potential, post-exposure follow-up or other aspects of the Blood Borne Pathogens and Air Borne Pathogens/Tuberculosis Program, please contact your Technical College Blood and Airborne Pathogens Coordinator. If you need other additional information, please contact: Phil Petty, Agency Blood and Airborne Pathogens Program Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org
