Employees must know how to respond properly when an accident or injury occurs in the workplace. Exposure to bloodborne pathogens is a serious concern in responding to injury because these microorganisms can cause disease. Understanding and following basic first aid and emergency action steps helps to minimize threats to life and health.
Employers should provide additional training when a new hazard/procedure/condition or piece of equipment is introduced into the workplace or “unscheduled” refresher training is recommended as directed to address inadequacies in knowledge and to address unsafe acts/deviations from procedures.
