Look at the blood borne pathogen exposure regulation. I use the hospital
. It helps you find specifics faster.




BBP reg: https://www.osha.gov/SLTC/etools/hospital/hazards/bbp/bbp.html


*	Employer should establish and maintain both medical and training
records [29 CFR 1910.1030(h)(1)
id=10051>  and 29 CFR 1910.1020
id=10027> ].

*  If an exposure incident occurs, employer should add reports to the
medical record to document the incident, including testing results following
the incident, follow-up procedures, and the written opinion of the health
care professional.

§  Medical Records must be preserved and maintained for each employee with
an occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens [29 CFR 1910.1030(h)(1)
id=10051#1910.1030(h)(1)> ] and for at least the duration of employment plus
30 years. They must be kept confidential (not disclosed without written
permission of employee, except by law) and separate from other personnel
records and must also include:

§  The employee's name and social security number, hepatitis B vaccination
status, including the dates of vaccination and medical records related to
the employee's ability to receive vaccinations.

Hope you find this helpful
. Very quick resource once you click on the
hazard that you want.

Can anyone direct me where I can find the OSHA regulation pertaining to the
Duty to ensure privacy of employees exposed to blood and body fluid.  I know
some facility use psuedo names in order to protect their employees privacy
when the test are done in their facility.  I want to do this, however our
lab is not agreeable as they are not sure how to register the employee and
keep everything straight.   The lab informed me that they checked the state
regulations (we are in PA) and there is nothing that says we must give
psuedo names.  Therefore , I am looking for any information that would
assist my mission to provide privacy to our employees.  I thought there was
an OSHA regulation if the test was done within the facility such as the
rapid HIV suds test that we could not use their name.  Can anyone direct me
on this?
