Bloodborne Pathogen Training Quiz

This quiz and the related training are intended for students, faculty, staff and guests involved in the conduct of research at OSU Center for Health Sciences only. If you have questions, please contact Laurie St. Clair, laboratory safety coordinator.

The questions for this quiz may be from the PowerPoint presentation, Emergency Response Procedures or the Bloodborne Pathogen Exposure Control Manual. This is an open book quiz, however you must have a passing grade of 80% to have completed this section even though 100% should be attempted. Also, feel free to discuss the questions and answers with other OSU-CHS personnel who may be exposed to bloodborne pathogens. The purpose of completing the quiz at 100% is to demonstrate that you have read the manuals, understand their contents, and have gained the knowledge to work safely with possible bloodborne pathogens. What you learn may prolong your life and those of your co-workers.

2 There is a vaccination for HCV
3 Contact with air immediately destroys the infectious nature of bloodborne pathogens
4 OPIM stands for ‘Other Potentially Infectious Materials’
5 The term Universal Precautions assumes that all blood or OPIM is contaminated with infectious materials
6 Contaminated sharps should be placed in a biohazard bag and disinfected
7 An employer must offer Hepatitis B vaccination to an employee within 15 days of the employee working in an “at-risk” responsibility
