Its very important for cleaning employees and staff to know the importance about bloodborne pathogens. Bloodborne pathogens are pathogenic microorganisms that are present in human blood and other body fluids and can cause disease in humans. Bloodborne pathogens can be contracted or to come in contact by blood, mucous membrane, saliva and other body fluids and/or cuts, abrasions, human bites or needle sticks. Wearing proper personal protective equipment at all times helps minimize the exposure of bloodborne pathogens. Make sure that all infectious materials are properly disposed of with labels or color coded. If exposed to potentially bloodborne pathogens, make sure that the affected area is properly disinfected and reported to the supervisor then followed up by your healthcare provider immediately after initial exposure. Its good to be educated about bloodborne pathogens and infectious disease to minimize the exposure. As stated, wearing your personal protective equipment is the first line of defense.
