Bloodborne Pathogen Training

The Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) is responsible for ensuring that all Pennsylvania State University laboratory personnel (excluding Hershey Medical Center and the College of Medicine) who handle human blood and blood products, human body fluids and/or human tissues, in addition to the principal investigators and advisors listed on protocols that use these materials, are aware of the potential hazards involved in handling these materials and use the proper precautions to protect themselves from bloodborne diseases. Penn State Policy SY24 defines human blood and blood products, human body fluids, and human tissues as biohazardous materials.
