Bloodborne Pathogen Training is a USA OSHA Compliant training course. All our certificates come from the Body Art Training Group.
Body Art Training Group is a verified source that helps tattoo artists, piercers and permanent cosmetic technicians with the proper knowledge to use the machines and how to avoid the infectious diseases, to sustain a healthy and safe working environment.
Our mission is to be able to equip you with information useful for your first step into this industry of body art. The first ever step to anything is to be able to interpret where you are going, the pros and the cons of the job. We are going to help you with safety plans through this training.
Most countries do not have a program like that of the USA. Our hope is to bring awareness to the technicians and artists so that they can acquire their skills at an international level. Most importantly to protect you and your family.
Bloodborne Pathogens are infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause multiple diseases, like Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, and HIV, in humans. Needlesticks and other injuries can expose others to these diseases.
Permanent Makeup including microblading and body tattooing is becoming more and more popular and not just for a certain group of people. It’s becoming more mainstream. But as there are risks with any procedures, we must understand how to reduce these risks.
We are familiar with the basic procedure conducted to perform permanent make up. Needles are used and your skin surface is broken to inject the pigment into your skin. This training is specifically going to help you prepare yourself and your family’s safety to prevent any such diseases from spreading while the procedure is conducted.
