Employees in many work environments have potential exposure to bloodborne pathogens and knowing how to properly respond can prevent a serious illness. This video training discusses the need to be aware of the facility’s exposure control plan and practice proper risk management and emergency response techniques.
This training explains what bloodborne pathogens are, routes of entry to the body and methods to take to protect yourself. It explains how to respond when a co-worker is injured, when a potentially contaminated needle is discovered and when disposing of potentially contaminated materials. The use of barrier devices such as protective gloves, face masks and eye shields is explained.
This short, concise video is easy to understand and effectively makes the point that is impossible to discern contaminated blood and devices from those that do not carry bloodborne pathogens, and therefore, following solid risk management techniques is the best way to prevent contracting a bloodborne illness.
