Bloodborne Pathogens Online Training
Developed by staff and faculty at the University of Washington, School of Dentistry
Target Audience: Any individual with a job that could expose them to a Bloodborne Pathogen

In 1992, the state of Washington enacted a law mandating annual training for all individuals with jobs that could expose them to a Bloodborne Pathogen (BBP). This module is designed to provide you with the training necessary to keep you and your patients safe and to make sure you are compliant with the Washington state law training requirement.
- Familiarize you with the kinds of bloodborne pathogens (BBP) found in the dental office, describe the risk they pose to you and patients, and teach you preventative measures to avoid risk of exposure.
- Assist you in developing an exposure control plan for mitigating risk of exposure in your office.
- Fulfill your Washington state annual BBP training requirement.
