The Annual EXPO-S.T.O.P. 2019 Survey (Exposure Survey of Trends in Occupational Practice) is now open and we again ask for your valuable participation.

All responses are confidential. No organization is identified without their permission.

The survey is only 15 questions of your 2019 sharps injury & mucocutaneous exposure incident data.

AOHP’s EXPO-S.T.O.P. is valued as a nationwide exposure incident database.  It enables participants to use evidence-based data to implement strategies to prevent exposure incidents and to benchmark their Sharps injuries and Mucocutaneous exposures to others. 

Results from our past surveys show that AOHP has the reach, impact and dedication to make a significant contribution to prevent future exposures around the world. We need many hospitals to participate – and help prevent occupational exposures to bloodborne pathogens.

Linda Good has retired! To ensure EXPO-STOP continuity, the AOHP Board has engaged the International Safety Center (EPINet®) to conduct data collection. Terry Grimmond will assist for the 2019 survey.

We will not be using Survey Monkey this year for data collection.  The survey will be in a new format (Microsoft Access) that will be emailed to you with instructions (email Ginger Parker with “EXPO-STOP Form” in “Subject” line).

Data entry is simple and fast. Providing your email address when you complete the questionnaire form will insure you receive the summarized report data when it is tabulated.

NOTE: Some answers may need come from Finance or HR, so allow time to get their answers.


Submit your data by April 10, 2020 to enter the drawing for this valuable prize!

One entry for each hospital included.

EXPO-S.T.O.P. allows us to:

  • Ascertain national Sharps Injuries and Mucocutaneous exposure incidence, stratified by hospital size, daily census, FTE and teaching status.
  • Examine data for timeline trends and compare with other surveillance systems
  • Compare effective prevention strategies from hospitals with lower incidence
  • Keep survey simple to encourage as many hospitals as possible to participate

Please join us in this great AOHP initiative - your initiative, helping our staff work in a safe environment.

For further information, email Ginger Parker, or Terry Grimmond, or AOHP Headquarters

This AOHP EXPO-S.T.O.P. survey is sponsored by Daniels Health.
