The Importance of Cleaning Staff Being Knowledgeable on Bloodborne Pathogens

12 Aug 2022 6:43 AM | Kim Worrell

It is very important for cleaning staff to be aware of bloodborne pathogens risks. Any cleaning staff could come into contact with bodily fluids that have the possibility of spreading disease. Cleaning staff should always use universal precautions as there is a possibility to infect themselves and others by not properly handling situations where there is potentially bloodborne pathogens.

This bloodborne pathogens training can help employees to be aware of the risks and to how use universal precautions. For instance, wearing proper PPE and following all established safety protocols. Without training, employees may not be aware of the risks and that could lead to many people being at risk to be infected by a bloodborne pathogen that could have been avoided.

Even if a cleaning employee would not usually be expected to come into contact with a bloodborne pathogen, they should still have the proper training to be able to handle the situation and reduce the chances of anyone contracting a bloodborne pathogen disease.
