In addition, childcare workers, school personnel, maintenance workers, tattoo artists, and state corrections facilities may be interested in the course due to additional state regulations.
Bloodborne pathogens are some of the biggest causes of preventable diseases.
When there is any exposure to blood, there is a chance that a blood borne illness is going to be transferred. Many people are exposed to or expose others to blood borne pathogens without even realizing it – for example, from small cuts on the fingers which barely cause any inconvenience to the person who has them, but which can expose one to blood borne illnesses. A minor cut in the workplace might not seem like a big deal, but it can expose others to a sickness or cause the person who sustained the cut to be exposed.
Methods of keeping people safe from blood borne pathogens might seem like common sense, but there is always one step or another that the people taking our classes did not think of doing themselves.
This is why this class is necessary: not because putting a band-aid on a cut is a complicated concept, but because people in the workplace need to have a unified, reliable, consistent knowledge of how to deal with the minor (or major) injuries that can happen in the workplace and how to keep themselves and others safe from blood-borne illnesses.
