This event recurs on a custom schedule.   Click here to see the series dates.
Event Description:
In accordance with the Compliance Checklist (CL#36 & 37), to protect DOE employees from exposure to bloodborne pathogens (BBP), you and your staff should complete the following actions by the deadlines below:

  • By September 25: You must identify a Site Employee Safety Administrator (SESA) in Galaxy.
  • By October 10: Your SESA should complete the school Exposure Control Plan, Site Cleaning Schedule, and identify at-risk employees in your school using the Bloodborne Pathogens Compliance Tool (BBPCT) beginning September 1; to log-in, use your DOE Outlook ID and password.
  • By November 7: Employees who are identified as at-risk for exposure to bloodborne pathogens should complete a webinar training on bloodborne pathogens. Training can be done individually via the email link that will be sent to each employee when they are flagged as being at-risk for BBP, or as a group organized by your school's SESA.

Note that new employees hired after October 10, 2017 ("mid-year hires�) must be identified as at-risk or not at-risk in the BBPCT.

Please note the new processes for the 2017-18 school year; beginning September 1, take the following action, as appropriate:

  • Exposure Control Plans and Site Cleaning Schedules must be certified as up-to-date in BBPCT via a new certification checkbox.
  • The DOE updated the at-risk categories. As a result, some returning employees will appear as "unidentified." All "unidentified� employees must be categorized as either B or C (based on the updated at-risk categories). If the employee is not at risk, s/he must be identified as category C; if the employee is at-risk, s/he must be identified as category B.
  • Using Excel, SESAs can download a training attendance sheet and upload the attendance data directly into BBPCT.

For a general overview of BBP compliance, you should review the Bloodborne Pathogens Compliance Information Sheet for SESAs & Principals, also available in the "Resource� section of the Bloodborne Pathogens Compliance Tool. For questions, call the BBP Hotline at 718-935-2895 or email BBPquestions@schools.nyc.gov.
