Bloodborne Pathogens In the WorkPlace

05 Jul 2020 8:57 PM | Willie Jones

 Bloodborne Pathogen training is important to cleaning employees for their safety and everyone around the work place. Bloodborne Pathogens include Hepatitis C, Hepatitis B, HIV. Pathogen are transmitted through body fluids. Cleaning employees can be exposed to these body fluids with just performing basic tasks.

Following OSHA guidelines can help prevent any exposures that can be minor to fatal. OSHA was originally design for healthcare worker but has expanded to any occupations dealing with body fluids. Wear protective gear dealing with contaminated fluids and never eat, drink around hazardous areas. Always washes your hands, for less exposure.

If you feel that you have possibly been exposed to any Bloodborne Pathogens immediately contact your supervisor for immediate testing and treatment. When a exposure occurs it is your employer responsible to keep records on file for minimum of 3 years.
