      Universal Precautions

    Correct Answer
    D. Universal Precautions
    Explanation
    Universal precautions is a set of guidelines and precautions that are followed in healthcare settings to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases.

    A transmission route that requires physical contact between an infected person  and a susceptible person.

    • A.

      Indirect Contact Transmission

    • B.

      Direct Contact Transmission

    • C.

      Semi-contact Transmission

    • D.

      Total Contact Transmission

    Correct Answer
    B. Direct Contact Transmission
    Explanation
    Direct contact transmission refers to the spread of infectious diseases through physical contact between an infected person and a susceptible person. This can occur through touching, kissing, sexual contact, or other forms of close contact. The infectious agent can be transferred directly from one person to another, increasing the risk of transmission. This mode of transmission is different from indirect contact transmission, where the infectious agent is spread through contaminated objects or surfaces. Semi-contact transmission and total contact transmission are not commonly recognized terms in the context of disease transmission.

    How often must employees receive BBP training?

    • A.

      Annually

    • B.

      Quarterly

    • C.

      As needed

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    A. Annually
    Explanation
    Employees must receive BBP (Bloodborne Pathogens) training annually to ensure they are up to date with the latest information and protocols for handling potentially infectious materials. This training is crucial for maintaining a safe and healthy work environment, as it educates employees on how to prevent the transmission of bloodborne diseases and how to properly handle and dispose of hazardous materials. Regular training helps employees stay informed about any updates or changes in regulations and best practices, ensuring they are equipped to handle any potential risks or emergencies that may arise.

    Employers are required to provide employees with this vaccination, if they have the chance of occupational exposure.

    • A.

      Hepatitis C Vaccination

    • B.

      Hepatitis B Vaccination

      Flu Vaccination

    • D.

      HIV Vaccination

    Correct Answer
    B. Hepatitis B Vaccination
    Explanation
    Employers are required to provide employees with Hepatitis B vaccination if they have the chance of occupational exposure because Hepatitis B is a highly contagious liver infection that can be transmitted through contact with infected blood or bodily fluids. Healthcare workers, first responders, and other occupations that involve exposure to blood or bodily fluids are at higher risk of contracting Hepatitis B. Providing vaccination helps protect employees from this potentially serious and life-threatening infection.

    Workplace accessories that are designed to create a barrier against workplace hazards.

    • A.

      Engineering Controls

    • B.

      Headphones

    • C.

      Personal Protective Equipment

    • D.

      Administrative Controls

    Correct Answer
    C. Personal Protective Equipment
    Explanation
    Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) refers to workplace accessories that are designed to create a barrier against workplace hazards. PPE includes items such as helmets, gloves, goggles, and masks, which are worn by workers to protect themselves from potential injuries or illnesses. Unlike engineering controls, which involve modifying the workplace environment to minimize hazards, PPE directly protects the individual worker. Administrative controls, on the other hand, involve implementing policies and procedures to reduce exposure to hazards. Headphones, while they may provide personal comfort or entertainment, do not serve as protective equipment against workplace hazards.
