(UK) Occupational Health and Safety in Healthcare: Risk of Blood-Borne Infections Mobile App

The (UK) Occupational Health and Safety in Healthcare: Risk of Blood-Borne Infections mobile app is a guide to prevention and good practice in the healthcare sector aims at improving health and safety standards in health institutions in the EU. Health service workers engaged in different areas or activities are exposed to quite different types of risk from infection. The app focuses on Blood-Borne Infections. These viruses are transmitted parenterally (through blood-to-blood transmission). They enter the blood stream of the healthcare worker via contact with the infected body fluids of a virus carrier (predominately blood and blood products) and are transmitted through the mucous membrane or broken skin of the healthcare professional.
