20 Apr 2021 9:24 PM | Lance Lionel

It is of vital importance that an employer gains knowledge and educate their employees on blood borne pathogens.  By acquiring these information employers can then provide proper training that will help their team safe guard themselves, colleagues and the general public from contracting illnesses that can be easily transmitted if it comes in contact with mucus membrane in example the nose and mouth.

When this information is filtered to the staff, they begin to practice health and safety that is requires examples wearing the correct personal protective equipment(PPE) lowering the risk of exposure to blood borne pathogens. They will also begin deposing of garbage and linen using color coded bags making it easier for other team members to identify the contaminated materials.

When an employer and their team practice the standard of infection control, following OSHA precautions for blood borne pathogens and implementing their Exposure control plan, this will minimize the risk of exposure thus protecting themselves., customers and the wider public.
