BBP Facts

Keeping work areas in a clean and sanitary condition reduces employees’
risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens. Each year about 8,700 health
care workers are infected with hepatitis B virus, and 200 die from
contracting hepatitis B through their work. The chance of contracting
human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the bloodborne pathogen which
causes AIDS, from occupational exposure is small, yet a good
housekeeping program can minimize this risk as well.
