The Importance of Understanding Bloodborne Pathogens

09 Dec 2020 3:21 PM | Wayne Morris

As the owner and operator of a commercial cleaning company, it is fundamentally important to understand the proper procedures for dealing with bloodborne pathogens. It is equally important that all employees have been properly trained and are knowledgeable of the risks posed by exposure to these pathogens.

To minimalize these risks, cleaning professionals should always wear proper personal protective equipment and treat all waste as if it contains contaminated material. All exposed equipment should be thoroughly disinfected after use and PPE properly disposed.  

Companies should have a written exposure control plan in place and maintain records of employee exposure for at least three years. Employees should know and understand the plan.

Safety should always be employee's first thought when working in potentially hazardous situations. Safety first and always.
