Enter Classroom6228Aerosol Transmittable Disease (ATD) for Contracted Providers The Aerosol Transmissible Disease Standard is California’s first standard to safeguard workers from the spread of airborne diseases. The standard covers healthcare and related workplaces that typically treat, diagnose or house individuals who may be ill such as hospitals, clinics, correctional facilities, homeless shelters and nursing care facilities. It is designed to protect workers who are deemed at higher risk for ATD exposure than the general public because they have duties that increase their risk of exposure to Aerosol Transmissible Diseases. The standard requires the employer to develop exposure control procedures and educate employees on the policy. The goal being that the healthcare organization can respond in an organized and intelligent fashion to any situation ranging from day to day management of a potentially infectious client to emergency surges that may be brought on by a pandemic. The standard also addresses referring employers. Referring employers do not provide diagnosis, treatment, transport, housing or isolation management of infectious disease cases. They do have the potential for an occupational ATD exposure, but will refer any ATD cases and suspected cases to other facilities. The CP Division has been identified as meeting the standard of being a referring employer. To complete the course you must pass with at least 8 correct answers. 01/18/2024 - 08/31/202408/31/2024852
