OSHA and Infection Control Training

As in the past, there are two training mandates:

* The first is OSHA blood borne pathogen training ANNUALLY.
* The second is NYS infection control training- EVERY FOUR YEARS
*

The attached report indicates the date upon which your current certificate for OSHA Blood borne Pathogen Training expires. Employees with expired certificates are indicated by a comment in the far right column of the table. YOU are responsible to keep your certifications up to date. Web sites are indicated below for on line training courses if you need.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Many thanks! Jill

1) OSHA-Required Blood borne Pathogen Training and NEW Joint Commission-Required Training ANNUALLY

. As of July 2009, the Mount Sinai Infection Control Department will be providing this additional training as part of the annual bloodborne pathogen and infection control training that is already required. This will allow our faculty and staff to fulfill both requirements by completing a single activity. Pre-registration is not required. The online course is available on the Infection Control website ( >>Infection Control). In order to receive credit for the online course, the post-test must be successfully completed after review of the slide presentation. The confirmation certificate generated after successful completion should be printed for the employee’s records.

2) New York State-Required Infection Control Training- EVERY FOUR YEARS

New York State requires that certain healthcare professionals receive training in infection control every four years. Information regarding an employee’s NYS certification status can be obtained from the appropriate Mount Sinai credentialing office. For a list of other approved New York State Infection Control course providers, visit http://www.op.nysed.gov/icproviders.htm. Licensed health professionals can also fulfill the course requirements online at www.proceo.com.
