The importance of cleaning employees & staff knowing about bloodborne pathogens

06 Mar 2021 1:07 PM | Dewuana Pope

The more my employees know and understand what bloodborne pathogens are, the more equipment they will be to minimize the risk of being exposed. While many people think that medical professionals are the only ones exposed to diseases of the blood on a day-to-day basis, the fact is that people in the cleaning industry can be exposed to bloodborne pathogens at any time. Within our company training program we will ensure that we stress the importance of how to properly clean and dispose of hazardous materials, how infectious disease spreads, about different types of diseases that spread through contact with blood and body fluids, the chain of infection, how to reduce your risk, and what to do if an exposure incident occurs.

Again, we cannot stress how important it is to be properly trained for bloodborne pathogens. They become particularly lethal not just because they are dangerous for your health, but also because they are virtually invisible and symptoms take a considerable amount of time to show. You could have several infected individuals walking around and working on your job site right now and you don’t even know it.
