Human Blood is a complex and beautiful thing. It courses through our bodies enabling and preserving life. When blood leaves the body due to an accident or trauma blood can become a Safety Hazard for those who have unprotected contact with dried or liquid blood. It is officially considered to be a Biohazard Material because of the potentially infectious components. Bio Recovery is Certified to Safely Handle Blood at the trauma scene. We carry a Blood Born Pathogens Certificate in New York City. Our technicians understand the risks associated with handling Biohazard Substances.
Safe Handling of Human Blood
Precautions must be taken to protect the health of anyone who comes into contact with another’s blood. Bloodborne Pathogens can be transmitted through exposure to human blood or body fluids. These viruses can potentially infect anyone who has unprotected contact with blood from someone else’s blood. The most common blood-borne pathogens that healthcare workers and others are exposed to include Hepatitis B and C, also HIV. Personal Protective Gear should be utilized to mitigate risks.
Viruses Transmitted Through Blood Exposure
Exposure to infected blood may result in the individual becoming infected with a dangerous virus. Risk levels can vary depending on the type of exposure, ability of the virus to cause infection and the amount of virus in the contaminated blood.
