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.
