Share Article

When V.I.P. Tots could not find blood borne pathogen training that related to the childcare or preschool setting, experienced staff members produced a DVD training with a manual and testing materials. This training is now available at http://www.VIPTotsTraining.org. V.I.P. Tots is a nonprofit agency established in 1979 that provides early intervention and childcare services to childrenwith and without disabilities.

The information contained in the new training video helps schools and childcare centers keep children and staff members safe.

A new training video launched by V.I.P Tots Training offers childcare programs and schools an effective vehicle to teach staff members about Blood Borne Pathogens and Universal Precautions. The training DVD brings the focus to the childcare setting. “Blood Borne Pathogens and Universal Precautions for Childcare Programs” shares keys to successfully administer training through a facilitator manual and includes a DVD training video, a follow-up quiz, and OSHA-required information for today’s childcare providers. The 18 minute training video informs staff regarding safe procedures when working with children and meets required training standards for childcare providers. The information contained in the new training video helps schools and childcare centers keep children and staff members safe. Blood borne pathogen training is a mandated annual training for childcare centers, preschools and schools.

V.I.P. Tots staff members searched and were unable to find a training video that referenced schools or childcare centers. Everything available related to industrial accidents in the workplace. The only solution was to create our own video! V.I.P. Tots was established in 1979 to serve young children with disabilities. A childcare program for children with and without disabilities was added in 1986. Staff members have considerable expertise and experience with training staff and parents. V.I.P. Tots team members took the next step and produced a new DVD after conducting research and gathering important information. V.I.P. Tots consulted OSHA regulations to create “Blood Borne Pathogens and Universal Precautions for Childcare Programs” . ([Occupational Safety & Health Administration, OSHA– With the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, Congress created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to ensure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance.)

The “Blood Borne Pathogens and Universal Precautions for Childcare Programs” video is available for purchase online at http://www.VIPTotsTraining.org. The video and training materials were produced by V.I.P. Tots, a provider of early intervention and childcare services to toddlers and preschool children with and without special needs.    Early care and education professionals may sign up on this site for our monthly newsletter that will share effective strategies, tips and resources.
