11 Aug 2019 3:16 PM | Deleted user

Bloodborne Pathogens are microorganisms found in human blood that can cause disease. Knowing the proper procedures to decontaminate surfaces or laundry exposed to these microorganisms is important for janitorial employees so they will not be exposed to a infection.

Understanding the importance and use of personal protective equipment  such as gloves, face mask, gowns, and safety glasses are vital to the individual performing the decontamination processes throughout the facility and to safely dispose those items after use.

This is part of the universal precautions for handling infectious materials and instruments exposed to blood, bacteria, or  some other infectious pathogen that can be transmitted. So, knowing how to prevent the spread of bloodborne pathogens is key to maintaining a healthy clean environment.
