The Importance Of Cleaning

20 Oct 2023 11:21 AM | Deleted user

When working in a field that may expose you or any of your employees to biohazards such as bloodborne pathogens it is important to practice the proper standards recommended by OSHA to clean, disinfect, and decontaminate the area or exposed surface along with disposing any and all hazardous materials such as soiled bedding or needles in properly labeled bags or bins.

It is also important when working in these fields to always use the safe cleaning standards provided to you by OSHA. You, your employees and your coworkers all must use the correct protective equipment, such as gloves, eye protection, and gowns if needed to avoid any contact with body or outside clothing.

When cleaning and disinfecting the contaminated area be sure to use only BETCO cleaning products as suggested by OSHA to ensure the area and surfaces are decontaminated and sterile.

Failure to comply with any and or all of these standards could result in you or your employees becoming exposed to bloodborne pathogens such as HBV or HIV which will result in lifetime health complications for you, your family, and friends. This type of exposure commonly occurs through an accidental needle stick which is more frequent in the healthcare field.
