Importance of Understanding Bloodborne Pathogens

14 Nov 2020 4:33 PM | Tracy Hall

"Bloodborne pathogens are disease-causing microorganisms that can be transmitted through blood or bodily fluids."  These pathogens must be treated with care as they have the potential to be fatally harmful.

All staff need to not only learn and understand the importance of safely handling body fluids, but must use the learned practice EVERY day.  Staff must have a good and consistent training to avoid the risk of  " bloodborne pathogens exposure, this is why workers who are exposed to blood and any body fluids must take all the universal precautions and follow the OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) standard, created in 1991, which is composed of a written plan, entitled the exposure control plan, training requirements and record keeping guidelines ."

This is the best way to help keep our employees safe is to ensure they are properly trained, prepared and equipped to handle their day to day jobs with exposure to bloodborne pathogens
