Current medical evidence indicates that the actual safety risks created for the transmission of the Hepatitis B or HIV/AIDS viruses are low in CSP’s normal academic and employment setting. Any employee who may be exposed to bodily fluids in the course of employment duties will be given protective wear in order to minimize the risk of transmission of communicable disease. CSP will make available the Hepatitis B vaccination series to all employees who have been identified as having the potential for occupational exposure. Training is provided at the time of initial assignments to tasks where occupational exposure may occur, and will be repeated annually. For more detailed information, contact the Environmental Health and Safety Coordinator.

Employees who have not received special bloodborne pathogens training should immediately notify the security office (x8777) or Environmental Health and Safety (x8347) for any situation involving contact with bodily fluids such as blood.  Do not attempt to clean up body fluid spills yourself.
