Importance of my employees & staff knowing about bloodborne pathogens

19 Jan 2021 7:54 PM | Mike Wilson

It is very important that my team understands that bloodborne pathogens are pathogenic microorganisms that are present in human blood and can cause disease in humans.  Most exposure occurs when in contact with the nose, mouth, and breaks in the skin.  

My team needs to protect themselves by understanding universal precautions and that blood and certain bodily fluids from all patients be considered potentially infectious.  They need to follow proper protective practices when handling all cleanups.  

As a company, i need to create an environment where my employees feel safe and understand everything they need to know about bloodborne pathogens.  I will create a written exposure control plan to help protect them.  I will provide proper personal protective equipment, proper cleaning and disinfecting solutions, and containers to ensure the safety of my team.  They need to be safe since they are the backbone of my company.
