American Heart Association Bloodborne Pathogens Certification
The AHA Heartsaver Bloodborne Pathogens course teaches participants how to protect themselves and others from being exposed to blood or blood-containing materials. This course is designed to meet OSHA requirements for bloodborne pathogens training when paired with site-specific instruction.
This course uses the PACT acronym (Protect, Act, Clean, Tell) and tagline, “Make a PACT, Know How to Act™,” to help students learn and easily recall bloodborne pathogens training.
Students learn how to:
- Protect themselves from blood or blood-containing materials
- Act quickly and safely
- Clean the area that has blood or blood-containing materials
- Tell their supervisor about the incident
The Heartsaver Bloodborne Pathogens Course is designed specifically for workers with a reasonable chance of coming into contact with bloodborne pathogens, such as: correctional officers, childcare workers, security guards, maintenance workers, school personnel, hotel housekeepers, health and fitness club staff, permanent makeup artists, and tattoo artists.
