Bloodborne Pathogens and Contaminated Sharps

If the on-the-job injury involves a bloodborne-pathogen exposure (such as a needlestick, contaminated sharp, blood/body fluid splash, etc.), medical evaluation and treatment must be obtained immediately. Professional evaluation is available at:

Employee Health Services
3708 Fifth Avenue
Medical Arts Building, Suite 500.59
Pittsburgh, PA 15213
412-647-3695

If the bloodborne pathogen exposure occurs when Employee Health Services is not open, immediately proceed to the UPMC Presbyterian Emergency Department.

Also, the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen Standard requires additional reporting for these types of injuries. A Sharps Injury Report Form must be completed by the injured employee's supervisor or departmental designee.

Complete this form and fax the completed form to the Department of Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) at 412-624-8524.
