Blood-borne Pathogen for Healthcare Professionals
Employees with OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE to bloodbourne pathogens are both at risk and responsible.
Occupational exposure means reasonable anticipated skin, eye, mucous membrane, parenteral contact with blood or other potentially infectious material (OPIM) that may result from the performance of an employee’s duties.
Parenteral contact means piercing mucous membranes or the skin barrier through such events as needlesticks, human bites, cuts, and abrasions. OPIM includes various contaminated human body fluids, unfixed human tissues or organs (other than skin), and other materials known or reasonably likely to be infected with human immunideficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C Virus (HCV) through cells, tissues, blood, organs, culture mediums, or solutions.

Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause disease in humans. These pathogens include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Needlesticks and other sharps-related injuries may expose workers to bloodborne pathogens. Workers in many occupations, including first responders, housekeeping personnel in some industries, nurses and other healthcare personnel, all may be at risk for exposure to bloodborne pathogens.
Bloodborne diseases are only spread when blood and certain other body fluids from an infected source get into the bloodstream of an uninfected person. An occupational exposure is contact with infected material through: needlestick or cut with contaminated sharp object, cuts/breaks in skin & mucous membranes (eyes, nose, mouth).
MIOSHA Occupational Exposure to Bloodborne Diseases Standard R325.0001-325.0018. This Standard applies to all jobs where there is a potential for exposure to human bloodborne diseases, including healthcare workers, laboratory workers, firefighters, EMTs, custodians and maintenance workers, etc. – That is why RE-TRAINING IS REQUIRED ANNUALLY.
Laboratories working with biohazards have a set of guidelines to follow from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH): The guidelines are in place to protect human health and prevent the release of pathogens into the environment.
The guidelines include:
- laboratory practices and procedures (e.g. OBSERVE PROPER HAND WASHING)
- facility design and;
- safety equipment requirements (BASIC PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENTS e.g.LAB COATS, GLOVES, FACE MASK, etc)
