Importance of cleaning employees and staff knowing about bloodborne pathogens.

17 Mar 2021 8:03 AM | Deleted user

Employees and employers both should be properly informed on proper OSHA standards for Bloodborne pathogens. The importance of PPE is mandatory and should be worn regardless if area is safe or not, and/or if the person is experienced or not. PPE is to be worn at all times. 

It is very important to have a OSHA control plan, which helps determine what to do before and after any exposure. Proper control plans show in detail how to properly clean up after potentially hazardous materials as well as how to properly dispose of such materials. Having a OSHA control plan could save many lives including your own. 

It is important that every employee and employer receives proper training and safety instruction. OSHA provides guidelines to be followed at all times. As well as a document that should be used in any incident report related to any Bloodborne pathogen exposures.
