Awareness of Bloodborne Pathogens in the Workplace

07 Aug 2022 2:20 PM | Brian Scott

It is imperative that all cleaning employees and staff are educated about the importance of preventing the spread of bloodborne pathogens in the workplace. Acknowledging and remembering to follow the PPE ( personal protective equipment) policies when handling and cleaning up any exposures to body fluids and sharp objects are a must.

When removing the protective equipment, always wash your hands with cleaner immediately. Always properly decontaminate surfaces and disinfect all equipment and materials used for cleanup. This will help limit exposure. If you think you've been exposed to a bloodborne pathogen, inform your supervisor and physician immediately.

These are a few ways to reduce or eliminate these hazards of occupational exposure to your worksite.The "best defense is a thorough offense".
