28 Sep 2021 7:56 AM | Carolina Herrera

Bloodborne pathogens are disease-causing microorganisms that can be transmitted through blood or bodily fluids. It is important to treat all bloodborne pathogens carefully because they can be potentially harmful.

Proper cleaning methods and prevention should always be used to protect yourself and others. Cleaners should have a very good training to avoid the risk of bloodborne pathogens exposure, this is why workers who are exposed to blood and any body fluids must take all the universal precautions and follow the OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) standard, created in 1991, which is composed of a written plan, entitled the exposure control plan, training requirements and record keeping guidelines .

This is the best way to eliminate hazards that can affect employees and people in the workplace, you simply can't be careful when it comes to dealing with blood or other infectious materials, proper procedures will always offer the protection needed to keep the workplace safe.
