OSHA defines "occupational exposure" as reasonably anticipated skin, eye, mucous membrane, or parenteral contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM) that may result from the performance of an employee's duties.

Occupationally exposed employees are required to observe Universal Precautions, an infection control practice which requires that all human blood and OPIM be handled as if infected with Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) or Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).
