Bloodborne pathogens are of great concern when it comes to maintaining a clean work environment. There are protocols and procedures that need to be used every time an incident occurs. It is not a simple matter of wiping down a countertop or floor. It is vital for you, your employees, and the employees who work in that environment to be kept as safe as possible.
Employees need to be aware and take precautions to avoid contaminating themselves as well as others around them. This includes training them on how to properly clean, transport, and disinfect after any possible encounters with these pathogens. Proper training should be given to each employee on how to clean using the proper tools and disinfectants. Gloves should always be worn when dealing with anything related to biohazard materials to ensure that our employees stay safe as well as our customers.
Since pathogens are not visible to the human eye, every job should be treated as though they were present. We must aim to do our best the first time in order to maintain a clean and safe atmosphere for our customers to work in.
