All Employees who can anticipate contact with human blood or other infectious materials as part of their job duties should complete bloodborne pathogens training, Within the workplace, bloodborne pathogens can be spread among coworkers through a number of different ways. 

They can be transferred through blood or other infectious bodily fluids touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. They can spread through cuts, abrasions, rashes, burns, or paper cuts of the skin.

The two main types of bloodborne pathogens are the Hepatitis B Virus and the Human Immunodeficiency Virus, or HIV and No cures are currently available for either virus, so it is absolutely important that you take all measures to prevent the possible spreading of them among coworkers, and train employee and staff about bloodborne pathogens.

It is so important to teach employee and learn, What bloodborne pathogens are? How bloodborne pathogens are transmitted, How to protect yourself from exposure, How to act if you are exposed and How to clean an infected area.
