Exposure Control Information:
Durham Tech is committed to the safety of college employees and students and the protection of Durham Tech
College employees and students participating in the Health Technologies and related programs at Durham Tech may be
involved in tasks that include direct contact with blood, body fluids, or tissues. These employees and students should
have a thorough knowledge of the Durham Tech exposure control plan, as well as the exposure control plans at the
clinical sites where they may work or perform clinical rotation. Appropriate protective measures must be taken to
reduce the risk of exposure to infectious disease.
The purpose of the Exposure Control Plan is to significantly reduce the risk of infection for employees with the potential
to be exposed to blood or body fluids. The targeted diseases include Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) and Human
Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). This plan and noted procedures are in compliance with the Standards of the U.S.
Department of Labor in 29 CFR 1910.1030 Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), pertaining to
employees who may be subject to occupational exposure to blood borne pathogens. View the plan, and other safety
In order to minimize the potential for the spread of infectious diseases amongst patients and clinical site personnel,
Durham Tech students and employees are highly encouraged to be immunized against and/or tested for infectious
diseases such as mumps, measles, rubella, hepatitis B, and tuberculosis. If you have any questions regarding your
immunization status, a listing of recommended immunizations for health care workers, or program procedures regarding
infection control, please consult your program faculty.
Please review the Student HazCom Right-to-Know and Fire Emergency Evacuation Training document annually.
