In an emergency, an employee providing first-aid to an injured employee or visitor is at risk of exposure to infectious materials or bloodborne pathogens. OSHA’s Bloodborne Pathogen standard establishes requirements for employees, even if the identified potential for exposure is a result of “good Samaritan” acts or incidental duties (duties not within the normal scope of one’s job). Section 5, Bloodborne Pathogens, provides the tools to establish a basic bloodborne pathogen safety program at a facility.
