Exposure Control Plan For Bloodborne Pathogens   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Superintendent or designee shall meet state and federal standards for dealing with bloodborne pathogens and other potentially infectious materials in the workplace. The Superintendent or designee shall establish a written Exposure Control Plan designed to protect employees from possible infection due to contact with bloodborne viruses, including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis B virus (HBV).

The Board of Trustees shall determine which employees have occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens and other potentially infectious materials. In accordance with the district's Exposure Control Plan, employees having occupational exposure shall be offered the hepatitis B vaccination.

The Superintendent or designee may exempt designated first-aid providers from preexposure hepatitis B vaccination under the conditions specified by state regulations.

Any employee not identified as having occupational exposure in the district's exposure determination may petition to be included in the district's employee inservice and hepatitis B vaccination program. Any such petition should be submitted to the Superintendent or designee who shall evaluate the request and notify the petitioners of his/her decision. The Superintendent or designee may deny a request when there is no reasonable anticipation of contact with infectious material.
