07 Mar 2021 11:44 PM | Deleted user

Healthcare workers are not the only types of workers that come into contact with bloodborne pathogens. In fact custodians, janitors and cleaners are all exposed to blood and other bodily fluids daily. It is important for anyone who works in the cleaning industry to be thoroughly trained on how to identify potentially contaminated areas and proper PPE when working. Its also important to make sure all workers are trained in first aid .

If an exposure were to occur ,it is vital the the proper first aid, reporting and documentation process is followed to ensure safety of not following OSHA's standards puts other people at risk for many infectious diseases as well as the worker being fined by OSHA. 

By providing your employees with the proper training it could make the world a safer place for everyone.
