    Needlestick Safety and Prevention Act

    The Needlestick Safety and Prevention Act (NSPA) was enacted to codify and strengthen the guidelines set forth in OSHA's Bloodborne Pathogens Standard as it relates to reducing the incidence of accidental needle and other sharp (non-needle) equipment injuries in healthcare and other occupational settings where employees are exposed to blood or other potentially infectious bodily fluids, tissue or cell material. The NSPA imposes three requirements on covered employers. This Legal Insight will explore these requirements at a greater length.
