Blood Borne Viruses Toolbox Talk (UK) Mobile App
The risks of Blood Borne Viruses (BBV’s) that are carried by some individuals are relatively low through everyday social contact with those who have been diagnosed with a BBV.
How does it work?
Most BBVs are transmitted sexually or by direct exposure to infected blood or other body fluids contaminated with infected blood. However, in the workplace occupational exposure can happen accidentally through contamination of a sharp instrument, open wounds, skin abrasions, or splashes to the eyes, nose or mouth. Employers have a legal duty to protect the health of their employees and/or any persons on the premises at any time. Precautions must be taken when a risk is known. Employees must be given information, instruction and bloodborne pathologens training which they may face at the workplace. The Blood Borne Viruses Toolbox Talk (UK) form provides the opportunity for employers to have an open discussion with employees about preventing exposure to BBV, and in the case of such exposure, protective equipment, steps to decontaminate, and waste removal.
There are a number of other Toolbox Talk apps for the UK that can be found in the GoCanvas store.
