Penn's Bloodborne Pathogens Exposure Control Plan (ECP)

All research labs with personnel who have the potential to be exposed to bloodborne pathogens or human source material, including primary and established cell lines, blood products, body fluids, and tissue must complete and review a lab specific ECP. ECPs must be kept on file with EHRS and are attached to the lab's BioRAFT profile where it is available to all lab members.

For guidance filling out Appendix C of the Exposure Control Plan, please refer to Penn's Biosafety Manual or contact a biosafety officer: biohazreg@ehrs.upenn.edu

Email a PDF of your completed Exposure Control Plan to ehrs@ehrs.upenn.edu .   Make sure that the PDF has been filled out with your lab's information.  The page 2 signature page and Appendix C (pages 20-22) must be completed.

The Exposure Control Plan must be updated annually.  If there are no changes, submit last year's plan with a current date.  Be sure to include an updated signature page.
