    Exposure Statement: OSHA requires an exposure determination concerning which employees may incur occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials. The exposure determination is made without regard to the use of personal protective equipment (i.e. employees are considered to be exposed even if they wear personal protective equipment.) This exposure determination is required to list all job classifications in which all employees may be expected to incur such occupational exposure, regardless of frequency. It is the departments responsibility to perform exposure determination for all employees and to list job classifications in one of three categories.

    Category 1: Employees in this category are routinely exposed to blood borne pathogen or other potentially infectious materials.

    Category 2: Employees in this category are not usually exposed to blood borne pathogens or other potentially infectious materials, but contact with infectious materials can be reasonably anticipated during the course of their duties.
