Tattoo artists, piercers, permanent makeup artists, and microblading artists have on-the-job exposure to blood and other potentially infectious materials. Because of this hazard, OSHA and many state agencies mandate bloodborne pathogens training. BBP training requirements vary from state to state, this is why we have a OSHA Approved Nationwide Bloodborne Pathogens course that meets OSHA's standards as well as Bloodborne Pathogen Certification By State BBP courses.

Many bloodborne pathogens courses offered by other companies are confusing and unhelpful because they are not body art specific.

Our courses, however, give you clear and effective coaching on 3 essential things you must do as a body art professional:
      •    Protect your clients from infection and disease
      •    Prepare for inspections and exposure incidents
      •    Earn a solid reputation for performing body art safely

Get certified with us and you'll get a masterclass in bloodborne pathogens safety. Why settle for anything less?

OSHA requires you to take annual bloodborne pathogens training. Most states also require annual bloodborne pathogens training.  Get more information about BBP training requirements by going to Course Approvals or by contacting your local health department or other local enforcement agency.

Hygeia was the Greek goddess of health, cleanliness, and sanitation. She was usually depicted feeding a serpent from a cup. Our logo is a stylized representation of Hygeia’s cup and serpent. It symbolizes our commitment to helping body art practitioners maintain a safe and healthful environment for themselves and their clients.
