Working in the cleaning field can be such a rewarding experience. Whether you're helping keep our medical facilities healthy and sanitized, or aiding a family in keeping a clean and relaxing home, it is important to know how to keep your staff safe from bloodborne pathogens.

If working in a medical facility, you may expect to come into contact with blood and other bodily fluids, but cleaning rental and residential properties, you can find yourself exposed as well. Bloodborne Pathogens, such as hepatitis b and c, HIV, and others, can be found in human blood or other bodily fluids. It is important for you and your staff to be trained how to properly disinfect and dispose of anything  contaminated as well as what to do in the event of exposure to ensure the health and safety of your staff.

Proper training on bloodborne pathogens is crucial in keeping you and your cleaning staff healthy, in any environment, or job type, because unfortunately, accidents happen, and knowing what to do In those situations can help keep everybody safe.
