the utmost importance of understanding blood-borne pathogens

24 May 2023 3:20 PM | Leslie Madueno

Employee knowledge of blood-borne pathogens is crucial for cleaning employees and staff. Blood-borne pathogens are microorganisms that can cause diseases when they enter the body through cuts, mucous membranes, or other access points. Cleaning employees and staff can be exposed to these pathogens when they clean up blood or other bodily fluids. Therefore, it is important for them to know how to protect themselves from exposure.

Cleaning employees and staff should be trained to use personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves, goggles, and face shields when cleaning up blood or other bodily fluids. They should also know how to properly dispose of contaminated materials and how to clean and disinfect surfaces that have been contaminated. By following proper procedures, cleaning employees and staff can reduce their risk of exposure to blood-borne pathogens.

In addition to protecting themselves, cleaning employees and staff also play an important role in preventing the spread of blood-borne pathogens. By properly cleaning and disinfecting surfaces that have been contaminated with blood or other bodily fluids, they can help prevent the spread of diseases such as HIV and hepatitis B and C. Therefore, it is important for cleaning employees and staff to receive regular training on blood-borne pathogens and how to properly clean and disinfect surfaces.
