Bloodborne Pathogens Certification
When caring for others, employees frequently come in contact with contagious viruses or bacteria that are carried by the human blood. The Bloodborne Pathogen training course is addressed to all employees who are exposed to the microscopic hazards present in the human blood, as well as to other potentially infectious materials, such as needles.

The Bloodborne Pathogens program is designed to give employees an overview of the way in which they may be exposed to BBPs while carrying out their daily work tasks. BBPs include, but are not limited to, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis C (HCV) or hepatitis B (HBV).
The second part of the module deals with actionable ways to control BBP hazards, as well as exposures, thereby reducing the chances of employees getting infected and/or transmitting diseases to other individuals they come in contact with.
All healthcare employees must undergo Bloodborne Pathogens training. This requirement also extends to waste management agents, first responders, certain social workers, and custodial personnel in some industries. The program is intended both for existing workers and potential candidates looking to improve their resumes before an interview.
These industries are more likely to require training in Bloodborne Pathogens:
- Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare.
- Waste Management.
- Education and Research.
Within the national jurisdiction of Canada, employers who hire people to work in environments that may expose them to BBP hazards are lawfully required to provide access to appropriate safety training. Thus, it is the employer’s responsibility to obtain and deliver this training course.
Still, many job candidates will complete their Bloodborne Pathogens safety certification prior to the interview, since this can significantly improve their chances of being hired. Ultimately, it is the employee’s responsibility to undergo this training program and apply the techniques they learned during certification.
Those who complete the Bloodborne Pathogens training course learn about factors that expose them to viruses such as HBV, HCV, or HIV. In addition, students are taught actionable, preventative measures to help them minimize and eliminate BBP hazards, but also how and when to use their Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
Industry standards recommend that workers exposed to Bloodborne Pathogens hazards re-take this course every year. New viruses and bacteria enter the healthcare and research sector on a regular basis, which is why it is mandatory to stay familiarized with BBP protocols for your safety, as well as for the safety of the people you come in contact with.
Employers or employees who purchase Bloodborne Pathogens also acquire First Aid Awareness, Personal Protective Equipment, and WHMIS 2015.
