02 Oct 2020 8:41 PM | Duchene Joseph

It is very important for cleaning employees and staff to know about bloodborne pathogens because anyone exposed to them are at risk for serious or life-threatening illnesses like : HIV and Aids , HBV or Hepatitis B Virus. And Employer responsability to follow the OSHA exposure Control Plan and observe Universal Precautions. Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms present in blood that can cause disease in humans.

All employers whose employees will be at risk of exposure ( blood, body fluid, laundry) are required to provide OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens training for their staff. Especially to know how to protect their selves against sharps & hazardous waste, needles or others contaminated objects . They must know how to protect themselves by learning about PPE ( Personal Protective Equipment ) and to make a report immediately to their employers after potential exposure for follow up relative at the situation.
