What must be included?
what are bloodborne pathogens
What are Bloodborne Pathogens?

They are viruses, bacteria and other microorganisms that:

  • are carried in a person’s bloodstream
  • cause disease

If a person comes in contact with blood infected with a bloodborne pathogen, he or she may become infected.

how are bloodborne pathogens spread in the workplace
How are Bloodborne Pathogens Spread in the Workplace
  • Blood from infected person can infect others by:
  • Into skin from contaminated needle
  • By contact with broken skin (scratch, cut, chapped hands)
  • Spray, splash into mouth, nose or eye (mucous membrane)
stop the spread
Stop the Spread

Break the Chain By

  • Washing Hands
  • Avoiding blood or other potentially infectious material
  • Using barriers (gloves)
exposure determination
Exposure Determination
  • An employee’s risk of exposure to infected blood is determined by an evaluation of two variables:

1. The employee’s risk of contacting blood, based on occupation group, and;

2. The presence of persons infected with HIV or HBV.

procedures to follow if an exposure incident occurs
Procedures to follow if an exposure incident occurs
  • If there is an exposure, wash the exposed area immediately
  • Contact your supervisor
  • Your supervisor will provide proper paperwork
  • Where to seek medical evaluation & treatment
      • Local city or county health department
      • Private physician

Post Exposure Evaluation & Follow Up
  • Access to a health care professional for exam, treatment and evaluation
  • Most likely will be handled as a worker’s compensation case
    • Coordinate this information with Human Resources
work area practices
Work Area Practices
  • In work areas where there is a reasonable likelihood of exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials, employees are not to eat, drink, apply cosmetics or lip balm, smoke, or handle contact lenses, nor should they allow others to do so.
  • Food and beverages are not to be kept in refrigerators, freezers, shelves, cabinets, or on counter/bench tops where blood or other potentially infectious materials are present.
additional work area practices
Employees will wear gloves where it is reasonably anticipated that employees will have hand contact with blood and other potentially infectious materials.

Employees will wash their hands or other skin immediately or as soon as possible after removal of gloves or other personal protective equipment.

Additional Work Area Practices
more work area practices
More Work Area Practices
  • Employees exposed to human bites should wear long sleeves or other protective clothing.
  • Remove all garments that are penetrated by blood immediately. Place in plastic bag.
work area practices1
Work Area Practices
  • All procedures are conducted in a manner to minimize splashing, spraying, splattering, and generation of droplets of blood or other potentially infectious materials.
personal protective equipment
Personal Protective Equipment
  • All personal protective equipment used is provided at no cost to employees.
  • Personal protective equipment is chosen based on the anticipated exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials
gloves
Gloves
  • Gloves are worn where it is reasonably anticipated that employees will have hand contact with blood, other potentially infectious materials, non-intact skin, and mucous membranes.
  • Latex sensitive employees are provided with suitable alternative personal protective equipment.
housekeeping
Housekeeping
  • It is important to remember that contaminated surfaces are a major cause of the spread of hepatitis. Hepatitis B virus can survive on environmental surfaces dried and at room temperatures for least 7 days.
housekeeping1
Housekeeping
  • Employers shall ensure that the worksite is maintained in a clean and sanitary condition.
  • Employees involved in decontamination of work surfaces or equipment, or who handle contaminated laundry, must wear gloves to prevent contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials.
housekeeping2
Housekeeping

All contaminated work surfaces are decontaminated after completion of procedures, immediately or as soon as feasible after any spill of blood or other potentially infectious materials, and at the end of the work day if the surface or equipment may have been contaminated since the last cleaning.

specimen collection
Specimen Collection
  • Specimens of blood or other potentially infectious materials are placed in a container, which prevents leakage during the collection, handling, processing, storage, transport, or shipping of the specimens.
  • The container used for this purpose is labeled with a biohazard label or color-coded unless universal precautions are used throughout the procedure and the specimens and containers remain in the facility.
laundry procedures
Laundry Procedures
  • Use gloves and follow universal precautions when handling contaminated laundry or other potentially infectious materials.
  • Bag all contaminated materials (towels, gauze, paper towels) at the area where contaminated. Place in leak proof bags with the “biohazard” label.
  • Place laundry in appropriately marked bags at the location where it is used. The laundry may not be sorted or rinsed in the area of use.

Contaminated laundry may be placed in plastic bag and sent home with student.

regulated waste disposal
Regulated Waste Disposal
  • All contaminated sharps are discarded as soon as feasible in sharps containers located at each school office.
  • Regulated waste other than sharps is placed in appropriate containers that are closable, leak resistant, labeled with a biohazard label or color-coded, and closed prior to removal.
  • If outside contamination of the regulated waste container occurs, it is placed in a second container that is also closable, leak proof, labeled with a biohazard label or color-coded, and closed prior to removal.
  • All regulated waste is properly disposed of in accordance with federal, state, county, and local requirements.
