Bloodborne Pathogens

Bloodborne Pathogens


Introduction: In the workplace, bloodborne (BBP) may be transmitted when blood or other infectious body fluids come into contact with mucous membranes (eyes, nose and mouth); nonintact skin (due to cuts, abrasions, burns, rashes, paper cuts); or by handling or touching contaminated materials or surfaces. Bloodborne pathogens are also transmitted by injection under the skin via a contaminated sharp object puncturing or cutting the skin causing a wound.
