Bloodborne Pathogens Importance

28 Sep 2021 12:54 PM | Robert Valentine

The importance of cleaning staff knowing about B.B.Ps.

It is very important for everyone to know about bloodborne pathogens and the fact that contracting them could lead to serious illness and maybe even death. It is not only the worker or the janitor who should have this knowledge but everyone else too. Like the wife of the janitor. so that she has the knowledge to catch a potential contraction of a bloodborne pathogen. Nobody cares more about the service worker then his or hers family. 

It is even more important for the cleaning staff or janitor to know that he or she should about BBPs. They are not only responsible for themselves but to all the people they come into contact with. Especially if they have the responsibility and duties of cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing the restrooms at work. They have the responsibility to make sure that the restroom is a safe place for the consumer to use.

When dealing with blood, vomit, or trash there is the possibility to catch a BBP. It can been on a piece of toilet paper that someone used to sneeze on that was left in the trash. It is also important that the janitor use the right protective gear so as to not transfer any possible contaminants to his or her fellow employees. Handling the duties of a janitor should be done slowly and carefully. 

In conclusion it should be a practice for the cleaning staff or janitor to work slowly. Making sure to be careful and not be careless and sloppy.
