Executive Summary

Occupational Safety and Health Administration's bloodborne pathogens standard is revised to clarify the need for employers to select safer needle devices according to availability and involve employees in the selection process, as was mandated by the Needlestick Safety and Prevention Act. NSPA was passed unanimously by Congress in November 2000. The amended standard also requires employers to keep a log of injuries from contaminated sharps, and will become effective April 18, 2001
