For safety professionals who scurry every year to complete annual bloodborne pathogens training on time, an OSHA letter of interpretation offers wiggle room.
 
“Annual training need not be performed on the exact anniversary date of the preceding training, but should be provided on a date reasonably close to the anniversary date,” states OSHA.
 
Employers who miss the annual training date should document why the training is delayed and when it will be provided.
