The importance of educating your employees and cleaning staff on Bloodborne Pathogens are beneficial to their safety and all others. OSHA (Occupational Safety Health Administration) has a standard practice regarding Bloodborne Pathogens. As part of the standard, OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens training was made mandatory for certain businesses, primarily those in the healthcare sector. As an employer we meet that standard and educate our employees on the All Protocols when deal with Bloodborne Pathogens.
Providing that training to staff & employees, allows the benefit of safety and knowledge on how to encounter such, when handling sharp bins, bio-waste or any other potential contaminated object. That training also provide what to do and who to contact in the event exposure. Most importantly, it is the foundation to prevent such error because of it not being taught through training.
When taking a new client in the healthcare setting and providing them with a certainty that your staff & employees are educated and trained in Bloodborne Pathogens to prevent exposure tells a lot about your values as a company. It assures them that their safety as well as your company safety is important.
