Bloodborne Pathogens Are A Risk To Everyone

29 Apr 2019 7:43 AM | David Han

The purpose of the Health and Safety policies and procedures is to guide and direct all employees to work safely and prevent injury, to themselves and others. All employees should be encouraged to participate in developing, implementing, and enforcing Health and Safety policies and procedures. 

The safety and well-being of our employees is our number one priority. Our employees represent us and are the face of our companies. We strive to ensure that our teams have a safe and clean environment in which to work.

Awareness and education followed by safe operating policies, guidelines, and procedures can ensure that all of us stay safe at work. Following basic safety principles keep us all safe and ensure that we can all work together to ensure our safety and health is not compromised at work.

Bloodborne pathogens are an ever-present risk. Risk management best practices and risk treatment methodologies guide us to minimize risks by taking precautions to limit our exposure to known risks.

Bloodborne pathogens are infectious diseases such as Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) that may be present in blood, vomit, or saliva. Blood, vomit, and saliva can transmit infectious diseases. Bloodborne pathogens most commonly enter the human body through the mucus membrane or skin breaks such as cuts or sores.

By educating and informing employees about the risk and dangers associated with bloodborne pathogens, we increase awareness with the goal of maintaining a safe working environment.
