    I. PURPOSE

    The purpose of the Elk Grove Unified School Districts Exposure Control Plan is to: 1) Eliminate or minimize employee exposure to blood or potentially infectious materials; 2) Comply with California Code of Regulations, Title 8, Subchapter 7, Group 16, Article 109,

    Section 5193, Bloodborne Pathogens.

    Blood and body fluids may contain pathogens, which are small organisms which can cause serious disease. Two of the most common bloodborne diseases are:

    Hepatitis B Virus (HBV), and Hepatitis C Virus (HCV), which causes Hepatitis, a potentially fatal liver disease.

    Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), the cause of Acquired Immunodeficiency Virus (AID).

    HBV, HCV and HIV are usually passed through contact with blood via sexual transmission, or intravenous drug use. In the school setting the most common way exposure can occur is when an employee has an open sore or injury and is in contact with infectious material such as blood, human tissue, or other body fluids that contain blood.

    II. AUTHORITIES

    California Code of Regulations, Title 8, Subchapter 7, Group 16, Article 109, Section 5193, Bloodborne Pathogens. California Health and Safety Code 117600-117620. 29 Code of Federal Regulations 1910.1030

    III. DEFINITIONS

    Blood Human blood, human blood components, and products made from human blood.

    Bloodborne Pathogens Pathogenic microorganisms, present in human blood which can cause disease in humans. These pathogens include, but are not limited to, Hepatitis B Virus (HBV), Hepatitis C Virus (HCV), and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).

    Contaminated The presence or the reasonably anticipated presence of blood or other potentially infectious materials on a surface or in or on an item.

    Contaminated Laundry Laundry soiled with blood or other potentially infectious materials or may contain sharps.

    Decontamination The use of physical or chemical means to remove, inactivate, or destroy, bloodborne pathogens on a surface or item to the point where they are no longer capable of transmitting infectious particles and the surface or item is rendered safe for handling, use, or

    disposal. Decontamination includes procedures regulated by Health and Safety Code Section 118275.

    Engineering Controls Controls (e.g., sharps disposal containers, needle less systems and sharps with engineered sharps injury protection) which isolate or remove the bloodborne pathogens hazard from the workplace.

    Engineered Sharps Injury Protection

    Either: 1) A physical attribute built into a needle device used for withdrawing body fluids accessing a

    vein or artery or administering medications or other fluids, which effectively reduces the risk of an exposure incident by a mechanism such as barrier creation, blunting, encapsulation, withdrawal, or other effective mechanisms; or

    2) A physical attribute built into any other type of needle device, or into a non-needle sharp, which effectively reduces the risk of an exposure incident.

    Exposure Incident A specific eye, mouth, other mucous membrane, non-intact skin, or parenteral contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials that results from the performance of an employees duties.

    Hand washing Facilities A facility providing an adequate supply of running potable water, soap, and single use towels or hot air drying machines.

    HBV Hepatitis B Virus

    HCV Hepatitis C Virus

    HIV Human Immunodeficiency virus
