importance of cleaning employees & staff knowing about bloodborne pathogens

27 Jun 2022 1:04 PM | Bianca Rougely

In our industry of working with the public there are many hazards we may come across. It is extremely important that ourselves and our staff know how to properly care for and dispose of items that may come into contact with blood. There are many contaminated items we can come across with as well and we should know how to manage everything to keep ourselves safe. 

Our staff and ourselves should be properly educated about cleanup and communicable disease. We should treat every contact and cleanup as if it could cause us harm requiring diligence and knowledge of what we are coming into contact with. 

Keeping a record of any exposure and the proper way to care for such exposure is very important in the industry and it could even save a life. This is not a topic to take lightly, should we come into contact with blood they may have been contaminated we should keep an eye on our symptoms and how we feel following. I’m excited to continue learning and look forward to expanding my knowledge.
