The importance of cleaning employees & staff knowing about bloodborne pathogens.

15 Jul 2024 7:46 PM | JONATHAN BARRIOS

Cleaning workers are a vital resource essential to carry out health and safety functions. They are responsible for carrying out the assigned tasks to remove organic and inorganic dirt and other contaminants safely and effectively. This leads to great results in improving health and reducing disease through the elimination and prevention of the spread of germs and viruses. In addition, they improve the image and aesthetics of our homes and workplaces, which causes a better emotional and physical state, greater productivity and quality in our lives and the environment.

It is of utmost importance that employees have the knowledge of the transmission of pathogenic microorganisms through blood, not only because the law requires it, but for the good and safety of all, since we are all prone and at risk of contracting health problems such as hepatitis B and C viruses and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) due to lack of knowledge of how to proceed when you run the corresponding cleaning tasks correctly. The correct use of personal protective equipment and informative training and its consistency is relevant to eliminating any dangerous risk of exposure. There is no doubt that it is the safest way to prevent exposure and counteract the risk that cleaning workers carry every day.

More than a responsibility, a commitment when it comes to implementing rules and procedures, a commitment to us and to society. The health and safety of everyone is the highest priority on the part of the appropriate authorities and on the part of us as cleaning workers. In the same way, we play an important role in the work structure since we are responsible for providing all the necessary equipment so that our employees have the confidence and security that they are protected when carrying out their work. Providing them with all the necessary information for them to develop their activities and be able to feel safe and capable that they are doing so.
