Exposure Control Plan For Bloodborne Pathogens   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The County Superintendent of Schools or designee shall meet state and federal standards for dealing with bloodborne pathogens and other potentially infectious materials in the work place. The County Superintendent 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 SCSS/designee shall determine which employees have occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens and other potentially infectious materials. In accordance with the SCOE 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 pre-exposure Hepatitis B vaccination under the condition specified by state regulations.

Any employee not identified as having occupational exposure in the County Office of Education exposure determination may petition to be included in the County Office 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 petitioner of his/her decision. The Superintendent or designee may deny a request when there is no reasonable anticipation of contact with infectious material.
