Bloodborne Pathogens

14 Oct 2019 2:22 PM | Jasmine Gremling

The best defense if a great offense, always treat every situation as a possible blood borne pathogen’s outbreak to ensure you are protected. You may ask yourself what exactly is a blood-borne pathogen? Well let me tell you a blood-borne pathogen is a transmittable disease carried through our blood and is highly contagious, an example would be HIV or Hepatitis. You do not necessarily have to be aware that you are coming in contact with a blood-borne pathogen to become infected. You can simply pick this up anywhere where blood could have been shed or other bodily fluids such as hospital floors, a sharps container or perhaps just an edge of something that cut someone else prior to you. A blood-borne pathogen is something we cannot see with our naked eye so it is even more important to fight against it proactively. Knowledge is power. Power is knowing.

   It's extremely important for any business, cleaning or janitorial company to be aware of proper OSHA safety protocol to protect themselves and your employees from possible occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens. This can occur in the simplest of settings by being nicked with something sharp and dirty, these things are never intended but they can and do happen. As an employer it is our responsibility to protect our staff members and advise them of potential hazards. At She Can Clean, LLC we provide our staff with personal protective equipment such as gloves, goggles, face masks and personal protective clothing when necessary.  We also encourage our staff to treat all activities as a possible bloodborne pathogen to ensure safety and protection from accidents at all times for our company, staff and clientele.

 At She Can Clean we take pride not only in providing a high quality service but in knowing we care for the properties we maintain , our clientele and our staff. What better way to show those you care by promoting a healthy and safe environment and ensuring your staff and clientele are always safe from unwanted and negligent cross contamination of blood borne pathogens.
