Bloodborne Pathogens

26 Nov 2022 10:37 AM | Steven Thompson

It is important for employees to know about bloodborne pathogens and how to handle material that may be contaminated. Adhering to methodologies like "Universal Precautions" and "Post Exposure Management" for the handling and disposing of contaminated materials can protect a company's employees from contracting bloodborne diseases like HIV and HBV.

A cleaning company should have available Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and manuals for addressing any exposure to contaminates including immediate treatment instructions.  Having an understanding of the environment and the potential for exposure to risks can prevent illness and any other loss associated with the illness of an employee.

A cleaning company that fails to inform and prepare its employees for exposure to contaminates potentially makes itself liable if employee contracts an illness while on the job.
