IPS Training and Certification

IPS has a training division that can certify your biohazard personnel in Bloodborne Pathogens and also instructor certification. Bloodborne Pathogens are diseases that could be contained in the human body specifically in blood or other human bodily fluids.

This is required by OSHA if your employees are at risk to bloodborne pathogens due to their scope of employment or job description. The question is; does their employment put them at risk to an exposure from blood or other bodily fluids. This would include blood, urine, feces, vomit, spit, open sores, semen and other human bodily fluids.

Exposure Control Officer

Not only does IPS offer certification training in Bloodborne Pathogens but can also certify police officers and other employees as Exposure Control Officers. The Ryan White Act states that all police departments must have an on call exposure control officer who can respond to the scene when an officer has been exposed to bloodborne pathogens.

Train the Trainer Program

IPS also offers the Train the Trainer Program. We will train someone to train your personnel. We will come to your facility or department and certify a small group of instructors to be Instructors Trainers (IT’s) to teach your personnel. This is an 8 hour train the trainer certification program which includes your exposure control plan. IPS can also provide your department or business with an exposure control plan that is mandated by OSHA.
