In the cleaning industry, it is very important for all employees and staff to know about bloodborne pathogens, in order to ensure the safety of the clients, employees and their family, friends or whoever they might come in contact with.
Basic missteps could result in devastating and possible life threatening situations that could be avoided by being educated and following the practices you are taught. Wearing personal protective equipment, properly picking up and disposing of possible contaminants, following the disposal and color coding protocol, all help keep everyone safer.
As professionals, we also have to be alert for anyone having a point of entry, being broken skin, boils or rashes. We have to be able as employees and staff to look out for any red flags, so we all can go home safe.
