    It is important for cleaning employees to be aware of bloodborne pathogens and the risks that come from them. But first we need to understand what they are. Bloodborne pathogens are disease-causing microorganisms in human blood which include HBV and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

    It's essential for employers to have knowledge on the procedures that are used to be cautious to help prevent the spread of bloodborne pathogens. One way could be by taking special training classes to increase their knowledge on precautions they can take. Without these training classes the employees could be at risk of getting infected if the proper measures aren't taken.

    In conclusion following the right steps when dealing with body fluids/ blood could prevent life threatening diseases in the workplace.

    "How You Can Implement Medical Cleaning Practices Into Other Residential & Commercial Cleaning Situations". The bottoms line is that in todays cleaning environment. You must treat all situations as if you are dealing with multiple germs and viruses. I would say that you might find even worse situations away from the Medical Cleaning environment.

    The first thing I believe you can add to your residential and commercial situations is the use of basic PPE. Gloves, Mask, and some type of gown. The gown can be reused if washed properly. I have found many times that this saves me from a messy situation. When I am done I am getting back into my vehicle and driving to another client. Stay clean.

    I tend to clean all of the bathroom work as if it is a medical facility. Hundreds of people may be using the same facility. Keep it simple but clean. Keep yourself protected from all germs and viruses along with making sure you are doing the same for the client. 

    Remember most clients will not continue to clean up after themselves typically medical staff try to help keep things clean. You never know what kind of situation you may walk into. Treat all surfaces as if they are contaminated. Protect yourself and never cut corners with PPE or any other protection you  may choose to use. Bryan.

       Among the many pathogens that can be spread through blood, HIV, HBV, and HCV are the most common.  Other pathogens include but are not limited to Ebola and other Hemorrhagic fevers, Syphillis and Brucellosis.

       It is important for all company staff to know and understand bloodborne pathogens, exposure protocol, along with symptoms of pathogens that can be easily spread.  

       Janitorial staff have a greater risk of direct exposure to these pathogens.  Especially for those that work in medical or where hazardous waste, sharps, etc. are present.  These janitorial staff members can then potentially infect those at the office and public.  Office personnel can then potentially spread these pathogens to other co-workers and the public.  These are only some reasons why Bloodborne pathogens shouldn't be taken lightly. If exposure occurs the exposure control plan should be followed. The exposure control plan should be updated once a year or when OSHA makes any changes.

       Proper ongoing training can prevent and eliminate direct and indirect infections, creating a safer and healthier environment.  This training can also reduce or eliminate workers compensation claims as well as any potential lawsuits. 

       Businesses using janitorial companies that are properly trained and certified, such as IJCSA certification courses, can be assured that they are using a knowledgeable, consistent and professional company. Some businesses may prefer or be required to use a certified company. In either case being member of IJCSA puts you one step ahead of your competition.

    Bloodborne pathogens are pathogenic microorganisms that can be present in human blood and cause diseases in humans. These pathogens include, but are not limited to, HIV and HBV. Therefore, blood is a potentially infectious material and how you take care of waste materials can literally be the difference between life or death. 

    Most infection occurs when the infectious pathogens come in contact with an employee's mucous membranes, such as the nose or mouth- and also open cuts or breaks in the skin. Although bodily fluids can easily contain pathogenic microorganisms, they can easily be protected against by using universal precautions.

    The CDC came up with a universal precaution approach by treating all contaminated materials as contaminated with bloodborne pathogens.. It is very important to wear personal protective gear when handling laundry and cleaning up waste to avoid the spread of infection and disease. If there is any chance that an employee has come in contact with bloodborne pathogens, it is important for them to notify a physician immediately.

     When I think germs, I think in terms of catching a cold/flu or worse. The last thing I want to gain from a visit to my medical provider is an additional illness. When a facility does not have a proper cleaning and disinfection plan in place, the patients are at much higher risk of additional infection, as well as the staff.   For example, my company services an Outpatient Wound Care Center that sees upwards of 100 patients daily who are all being seen for open and active wounds. Without using proper PPE and proper cleaning procedures, myself, staff and patients would be extremely susceptible to daily exposures of bodily fluids, organic matter, infectious diseases and more. 

    Cleanliness is important in any professional setting. However, we look to our health care professionals as the subject matter experts therefore we expect universal and/or specific precautions and the confidence of knowing that their facilities are clean and safe from further harm.

    Finding a good, trustworthy residential cleaner can seem like a real challenge, especially for anyone who hasn't hired one before. After all giving a stranger or stranger access to your home is unnerving. Though customers may be uncertain at first, they often decide employing cleaners is worth the cost because it saves them so much time and energy.

    Having a residential cleaner is a luxury and worth it. Living in a clean home is money well spent. Hire a cleaning company (https://www.ijcsa.org/House-Cleaning-Services) that ensures someone always shows up to clean your home. You aren't responsible for screening employees, handling paperwork or carrying insurance. On the other hand, turnover tends to be high, so you may not get the same crew every time, but you will get the same results.

    Be sure to ask about the satisfaction guarantees.  Here https://www.ijcsa.org/House-Cleaning-Services we stand behind our work. We have the experience, skills and certifications. With our professional residential services, you can establish a more personal relationship, communicating your needs just once and even customize a package that best fit your needs.
