Bloodborne Pathogen Certification

Date

Melissa A. Morland, MS, RBP, CBSP
Biosafety Officer, Environmental Health and Safety


Dear Ms. Morland,

I am requesting unfixed human anatomical specimens from the State Anatomy Board. These specimens will be packaged, transported, and handled in accordance with the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (29CFR1910.1030), and the University of Maryland Policy Concerning Prevention and Management of Student and Employee Infection with Bloodborne Pathogens. All University employees and students who will handle these specimens will do so under the University of Maryland Baltimore Bloodborne Pathogens Exposure Control Plan, have had the required annual training, have either been vaccinated or formally declined vaccination for hepatitis B, and will follow the practice of universal precautions. I have filled out and submitted the online the UM research registration form to the Institutional Biosafety Committee using this form.

Sincerely,

<signature block>
