Sample Company Policies And Procedures:

 

BLOOD BORNE PATHOGENS

As part of its continuing commitment to employee safety and health, the company has adopted a comprehensive policy for dealing with possible employee exposure to blood borne pathogens. While possible employee exposure to blood borne pathogens may have serious consequences, these measures are primarily intended to be precautionary.      

An employee who renders first aid assistance in any situation involving the presence of blood or other potentially infectious materials will immediately be offered Hepatitis B vaccination. The company will pay for this vaccination.      

If rendering first aid results in an eye, mouth, or non-intact skin contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials, the company will take the following actions. It will document the circumstances of the exposure. The company will identify the person from whom the potentially infectious material came. It will inform the first aid provider about the symptoms that might develop from exposure, collect and test the first aid provider's blood (with the employee's consent and the company's cost) for Hepatitis B and HIV serum status, provide post exposure treatment (if necessary), and provide employee counseling.
