Protecting employees from occupational exposure to disease-causing viruses and bacteria has become an extremely significant issue in the workplace. Work situations, which present the possibility of contact with blood or some other bodily fluid or biological agents, could pose a risk to infectious diseases. For example, the Hepatitis B Virus (HBV), Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) are pathogens that are transmitted through blood and other bodily fluids. Employees who have the potential to come in contact with blood or other potential infectious materials face the possibility of contracting these viruses and developing severe health problems.
This compliance training needs to be completed annually. All time spent on this training is paid and must be notated on student timesheet. Questions regarding this policy should be directed to the Director of Compliance/Risk Manager at 732-263-5355.
It is the desire and intent of Monmouth University that employees be informed about the hazardous substances they may encounter in the workplace, and learn the appropriate protective measures to work safely with those substances. The Hazard Communication Program fully informs students of the dangers involved with handling hazardous chemicals, so that they can safely perform their job.
Chemical exposure may cause or contribute to many serious health effects such as heart ailments, kidney and lung damage, sterility, cancer, burns and rashes. Some chemicals may also be safety hazards and have the potential to cause fires and explosions and other serious accidents. This compliance training provides the necessary information to employees, so they can participate in, and support, the protective measures in place at their workplace. All time spent on this training is paid and must be notated on student timesheet. Questions regarding this policy should be directed to the Director of Compliance/Risk Manager at 732-263-5355.
