Bloodborne Pathogen training is important

04 Feb 2023 12:36 AM | Cathy Howard

The importance of understanding how vital the training of Bloodborne pathogens is that we can come into contact with these items ANYTIME. Having the knowledge and experience is crucial daily life. The average person does not regularly consider safety until an incident happens. Our job as Janitors is to keep all environments safe for the public. This is not just relative to medical spaces. Any public area is subject to being exposed to bloodborne pathogens.

Keeping the staff safe and trained is a priority. Cleaning bathrooms, kitchens, and common areas can lead to exposure of pathogens. Keeping PPE (personal protective equipment) available is hugely important to stop any transmission of bacteria and viruses while cleaning the surface areas. Post pandemic, everyone has become more cognizant of transmission probabilities.

When placing any cleaning staff in a workplace with OSHA standard training, you have educated the staff for safety and protection of themselves and the public. Taking the necessary precautions will forever be critical to the success of our company and keeping the public safe.
