BLOOD BORNE PATHOGENS HIV AND HEPATITIS B POLICY
BLOOD BORNE PATHOGENS (HIV AND HEPATITIS B) POLICY
Blood Borne Pathogens pose a great risk to the health of employees if contact is made with another’s blood/bodily fluids. In general, if contact with another person’s blood or bodily fluids is possible, wear disposable gloves. Clean-up kits for dealing with blood/bodily fluid spills have been placed in several key locations on all campuses. Each kit contains disposable rubber gloves, a disinfectant/fungicide/virucide solution, a biohazard disposable bag, and a copy of the American Red Cross Preventing Disease Transmission Recommendations.
For more detailed and complete information in dealing with this issue, please consult the Georgia Highlands College Safety Plan. A copy of this plan is available in every department within the College.
