bloodborne pathogens

17 Nov 2023 1:48 PM | Matt Vongthongkham

The proper education/training/knowledge of blood borne pathogens is crucial because it can mean life and death. OSHA has standards for blood borne pathogen handling because proper PPE usage alongside proper handling of blood and fluids as all contaminated is a must.

Cleaning up a spill, blood/bodily spat, contaminated area should handled with the utmost importance and care. Bloodborne pathogens can enter thru the body and infect people thru their mucus membranes and cuts on the body. Proper PPE usage at all times will help alleviate some concerns of contamination.

Reporting incidents to employers for record keeping will aid in contamination practices in the future. Employers should properly train for such incidents.
