Benefits of Bloodborne Pathogen Training

27 Nov 2023 12:29 AM | Brittanni Pruitt

Bloodborne pathogens carry significant risks towards healthcare workers, first responders, the general public and individuals within the janitorial space. Proper training provides a crucial role in providing individuals with proper skills and knowledge base that is needed to prevent the spread of pathogens and to provide a healthy and safe environment. There are several reasons as to why this training is necessary, but today I will only speak on two; public health protection and compliance/regulation.

When a cleaning company implements bloodborne pathogen training, they are ensuring that their staff and employees are equipped with the knowledge to keep themselves and others safe from exposures to bloodborne infections that can lead to serious illness or death. If companies and individuals are not properly trained in this area, there is a great liability against the company and risks to all persons involved (employee, client, general public).

Secondly, OSHA requires this bloodborne pathogen training to take place annually. If individuals and/or companies are not in compliance with this standard then they are at great risk of fines and additional ramifications that could result in the termination of their contracts, employment or business licenses.
