Texas Brief PM/Lecture Course
OSHA Training Course: The In’s and Out’s of Germ Warfare


Infections present a significant hazard in the dental environment. Although protection of the patient is an
obvious priority, oral healthcare personnel are also vulnerable to exposure. The intent of this course is to set forth an Infection Control/Exposure Control Protocol to minimize the transmission of infections in the clinical process (for the protection of patients and oral health care personnel alike) via direct contact with blood, saliva, and other secretions; via indirect contact with contaminated instruments, operatory equipment, and environmental surfaces; and via airborne contaminant's, such as droplet spatter and aerosols of infectious body fluids.

Participants in this course will be introduced to evidence-based information that will facilitate compliance with 29 CFR Part 1910.1030, Occupational Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens, Final Rule (Federal Register 56(235): 64004-182, 1991 and the implementation of recommendations made by other federal, state, and local agencies and professional organizations.

In addition to fulfilling your annual OSHA requirements upon completion of this course, oral healthcare
personnel should be able to:
• Understand the rational for the need for an Infection Control/Exposure Control Protocol.
• Develop and implement an practical Infection Control/Exposure Control Protocol appropriate for a particular oral healthcare setting, which include the following essential elements:
• Education and training; Standard precautions Vaccinations
• Personal protective equipment; Work practice and engineering controls
• Environmental infection control; Post exposure evaluation and follow-up
• Medical records; Medical conditions and work restrictions
