The TRSA Bloodborne Pathogens Policies and Procedures Manual is designed to provide guidance to industry companies establishing their individual safety programs. Each company must recognize that its specific requirements will vary based on the nature of the soiled linen coming into the laundry, the engineering and work practice controls in place, the type of equipment used and the condition of its facilities. In addition, although this manual was designed based on current federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements, these requirements and the agency’s interpretation of these requirements change on a regular basis. Further, most states have a state Occupational Safety and Health Administration which may adopt standards that are more extensive and which may include more regulatory requirements than the federal OSHA standards. By publishing this Manual, TRSA is not providing readers with legal advice. Each industry member should have its own legal/safety advisor informing it of the steps necessary to meet current legal/safety requirements in the locations in which it operates. TRSA disclaims all liability which may arise out of or in connection with the use of this manual.
