523.21 Employees Occupationally Exposed to Bloodborne Pathogens
The Plymouth Jt. School District shall strive to safeguard the health and well-being of district employees and promote a safe work environment. As required by law, an exposure control plan shall be developed and adopted for use in the district. The plan, located in the District Office, Nurse’s Office or building Principal’s Office, shall be designed to reduce an employee’s exposure to the hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and other bloodborne pathogens in the work place.
It is the district’s full intention that, if necessary, the physical facility, work practices and other areas will be modified to attain the plan’s goal. In addition, employees will be informed and trained so that they, too, can contribute to the reduction and elimination of exposure.
To ensure that the exposure control plan is kept up to date, it will be reviewed and amended annually, and whenever tasks are implemented which may affect occupational exposure.
