Bloodborne pathogens are microorganisms such as viruses or bacteria that, if present in blood, can cause disease in humans. These pathogens can be transmitted from an infected person to a healthy person by contact with infected blood or other bodily fluids. In an active school environment, younger children are going to get cuts and scrapes as they participate in physical activities. Older students are going to be involved in accidents, fighting, and even drug use. All of these activities present the risk to school staff members of exposure to blood and bloodborne pathogens. This online bloodborne pathogens for schools video will cover some of the dangers to teachers & school staff members posed by exposure to bloodborne pathogens, what precautions are needed to minimize the risk, and what procedures to follow if exposed to possibly infectious bodily fluids.

Learning Objectives

  • Define bloodborne pathogens
  • List common types of bloodborne pathogens
  • Describe how bloodborne pathogens are transmitted from one person to another
  • List some requirements of the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard
  • Describe how to clean up infectious fluids
  • Describe the risks posed by sharps
  • Describe the proper technique for contaminated glove removal
  • Describe what to do if you are exposed to a bloodborne pathogen while unprotected

Key Questions

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What are bloodborne pathogens?
Bloodborne pathogens are microorganisms such as viruses or bacteria that, if present in blood, can cause disease in humans.

What are the most common bloodborne pathogens?
There are a number of bloodborne pathogens, but the most common blood related illnesses are hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV), and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) that leads to Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome, or AIDS.

How are bloodborne pathogens transmitted?
Bloodborne pathogens live in blood. An uninfected person can be infected if diseased blood, or other bodily fluids containing the pathogen, enter their body through a cut, scrape, or mucous membrane.

Can bloodborne pathogens be transmitted by casual contact?
Bloodborne pathogens cannot be transmitted by casual contact such as shaking hands, touching the same doorknob, or using the same restroom.

What can be done to minimize the transmission of bloodborne pathogens?
In workplaces where the chance of exposure to blood is high, equipment and procedures can be put in place to minimize the risk. The most important thing anyone can do is to wear protective barriers such as rubber gloves and safety goggles to prevent contact of infected blood with your skin.
