Occupational Safety and Health Administration
OSHA's mission is to assure the safety and health of America's workers by setting and enforcing standards; providing training, outreach, and education; establishing partnerships; and encouraging continual improvement in workplace safety and health. Workers in many different occupations are at risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens. First aid team members, housekeeping personnel in some settings, and nurses are examples of workers who may be at risk of exposure. In 1991, OSHA issued the Bloodborne Pathogens Standard to protect workers from this risk. In 2001, in response to the Needlestick Safety and Prevention Act, OSHA revised the Bloodborne Pathogens Standard 1910.1030. The revised standard clarifies the need for employers to select safer needle devices and to involve employees in identifying and choosing these devices. The updated standard also requires employers to maintain a log of injuries from contaminated sharps.

With responsibility for compliance with the HMR, other than those regulations applicable to a single mode of transportation, OHM places emphasis on packaging manufacturers, retesters and reconditioners, and multimodal shippers of hazardous materials.
