OSHA's Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (29 CFR 1910.1030) is a regulation that prescribes safeguards to protect workers against health hazards related to bloodborne pathogens. Its requirements address items such as exposure control  plans, universal precautions, engineering and work practice controls, personal  protective equipment, housekeeping, laboratories, hepatitis B vaccination, post-exposure  follow-up, hazard communication and training, and recordkeeping. The standard places  requirements on employers whose workers can be reasonably anticipated to  contact blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM), such as unfixed  human tissues and certain body fluids.
