    There are two main reasons as to why janitorial work and the people who do that for a living are just as important as any other working human being.

    Firstly, janitors and custodians work to serve others. They do their job in order to meet the needs of others. This aspect of their job is the basis of every other job out there, regardless of products or services being sold. Every public facility, public restrooms, work offices, hospitals and hotels, and restaurants to name a few, need janitorial services. Without them, there would be a lot of disgusting buildings and mad people around. There is a need for this type of work just like any other, so why look down upon the people doing it for you.

    Secondly, by performing janitorial services on a facility, a partnership is created between the service and the company they are cleaning for in order to serve the customers. The janitorial service is needed in order to keep customers or visitors happy. Take for instance a hospital. These doctors and nurses are giving high-quality care to patients. They rely on the cleanliness of their hospital to keep things sanitized and keeping patients feeling welcomed and not grossed out. Many people are coming in and out of hospitals so janitorial services are critical for their practice. Every time someone cleans for a company building, they are partnering with that specific company with is a great opportunity to keep both ends of the partnership valuable.  

    Don’t be sucked into the culture where these people are below you because they’re just as important as you. Not one person’s job is more important than another. Janitors and custodians deserve to be treated with respect and not looked down upon. If it weren’t for them, there would be a lot of places you visit that you would not return to. A job that serves people well is a meaningful one.

    OSHA’s Bloodborne Pathogens standard is a federal OSHA regulation (29 CFR 1910.1030) that prescribes safeguards to protect workers against the health hazards from exposure to blood and other potentially infectious materials, and to reduce their risk from this exposure. Health hazards include but are not limited to Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV, Malaria, Brucellosis, Syphilis, West Nile Virus, etc.

    Knowledge of bloodborne pathogens is important because, when applied correctly, it reduces risk potential to threats of viruses. The training guidelines of OSHA’s Bloodborne Pathogens standard teaches us that all bodily fluids should be treated as if they are contaminated. To eliminate exposure in the workplace, continuing and annual education should be applied to all employees and employers.

    Bloodborne Pathogen standards and application of these standards should be prioritized by all workers that come into contact with potential bodily fluid contact. labeling or color-coding is sufficient enough to let all employees know that compliance with the Universal Precautions is required. A knowledgeable and confident team will increase the value of your services to your customers while creating a great working environment for your team.

    Cleaning up bloodborne pathogens is the right way is essential to keeping your employees safe. Showing them how to properly will help prevent them from getting sick on contacting anything. They have to know that you have to take seriously when cleaning up. 

    Show your employees the proper PPE to use when cleaning bloodborne pathogens up. Show them how to use SHARP containers. Also show them how to dispose of them everything afterwards.

    Bloodborne cleanup is more common then most people think. Being safe and making sure everything is cleaned up is important. If is the cleanup is to much for you to handle contact your supervisor and they will figure out how to clean it up.

    Janitorial staff serve a fundamental need in our offices, communal workspaces, and learning facilities.  Maintaining a standard of cleanliness is incredibly important for the well being of the community. Ensuring the basic health of the community is the function of the janitorial professional, and understanding the standards and best practices of the janitorial profession is critical to delivering excellent service to our customers.

    We generally expect to walk into a business that is clean and in order, so from a business value perspective janitorial service is critical.  We serve as not only the cleaners of the establishment, but the experts that can consult on best practices and risk assessment of areas.

    In the government and educational space janitorial services play a critical role.  Ensuring the safety of our children in the spaces that they learn is an incredibly important responsibility.  Parents, students, teachers and faculty benefit from the janitorial service.

    Firstly the employee must know what is bloodborne Pathogens, they are organisms present in the blood that can cause diseases in humans. These Pathogens can be Hepatitis B, HIV- immunodeficiency Syndrome Virus etc. Which will eventually lead to the infected individual dead.

    These pathogens comes into contact with employees through their mucus membrane or their mouth. or if there is a break in the skin, bits, cuts. These pathogens can be found in body fluids such as blood, saliva, other body fluids. Know that these fluids are very infectious and must be handle carefully. At all times all body fluids and blood must be handle properly, using universal precautions. Personal protective gears must be worn at all times.

    To dispose of the contaminated items, they must be place is bags that are recommended for high infectious materials. While coming in contact or you have been exposed to any of the blood pathogen materials, you must notify your supervisor immediately, and then your health care provider.

    As we all know, all of the sudden the changes has forced themselves up on us,  we must adjust and make changes in order to stay on top and move on. 

    The whole meaning of clean has totally changed for good, so for me as janitor doing house cleaning, this Coronavirus has forced me to take the concept of cleaning to the next level, so now it's not longer about general cleaning but is also much more disinfection. People want it and are demanding it, and I'm glad to provide a professional service that will help keep everyone safe. 

    They said with every crisis there comes an opportunity, not that I wanted it this way to happen, but it is here and somebody has to do the cleaning properly, --that's why I'm with IJCSA taking this highly accredited certification
