A bilingual (Spanish and English) training module for employers with Hispanic workers, also to be used for English speaking workers. The goal is to learn about the hazards associated with human blood and what employer and employee must and can do to prevent contamination. Specific attention is paid to Hepatitis B and C virus (HBV and HCV) and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). The module learns about different ways of exposure, about contamination and summarizes various protective measures. The illustrated materials include a module text, a presentation (slides) and a handout.
The module can be downloaded from the website and printed for all employees. A glossary for the translation in both directions (Spanish, English) of the terms commonly used, is included.
The material is developed as part of the PESO program. On the OSHA Education and Training website also other educational materials can be found. http://osha.oregon.gov/edu/Pages/index.aspx
