Biohazard Control Policy


Many workplaces contain biohazards, i.e., substances containing living organisms, including infectious micro-organisms, or parts of living organisms in their natural or modified forms that can cause illness, injury and even death if they enter the body. OHS laws require employers to take measures to protect workers exposed to biohazards including developing and implementing a policy or exposure control plan addressing how the hazard will be detected and measured and which engineering controls and work controls and PPE will be used to if not eliminate minimize exposure risks.


This Model Exposure Control Policy is a basic and fairly generic template that OHS managers will need to adapt for specific substances and the specific OHS regulatory requirements of their particular province.
