6 Viruses, bacteria and other microorganisms that are carried in the bloodstream and can cause disease The most common bloodborne pathogens encountered in the school environment are: Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Hepatitis B (HBV) Hepatitis C (HCV)
7 Human bodily fluids such as semen, vaginal secretions, cerebrospinal fluid, synovial fluid, pleural fluid, saliva, pleural fluid, pericardial fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, any body fluid visibly contaminated by blood and fluids where it is difficult to differentiate between fluids. If it s wet and not yours, don t touch it without protection!
8 Hepatitis means inflammation of the liver Is the most infectious bloodborne pathogen Thirty percent of people with HBV have no signs or symptoms Can survive outside the body for up to a week Vaccine is available and very effective
9 Hepatitis B vaccine series is offered at no cost to all staff who are at risk of an occupational exposure to blood or OPIM: Vaccine is a series of 3 injections over 7 months with relatively few side effects. Staff at risk are: Special education teachers and paraprofessionals Nurses and health aides Custodians and plumbers Security and SRO officers Specific operation and maintenance staff At-risk employees who decline the vaccination must sign a waiver.
10 Long-term effects include chronic liver disease and liver cancer No treatment or vaccine is available Virus does not survive well outside the body
11 HIV attacks the immune system and can cause the disease known as AIDS Casual, person-to-person contact does NOT transmit HIV HIV is fragile and does not survive well in the environment There is no cure or vaccine
12 Bloodborne pathogens can be transmitted when there is DIRECT CONTACT with blood or OPIM of an infected person. 1. Blood/OPIM entering open cuts, wounds, or skin abrasions 2. Blood/OPIM splashing into your nose, mouth, or eyes 3. BBP can also enter via non-sterile technique when tattooing or body piercing, sharing needles, sexual intercourse and rarely by direct blood transfusion.
14 SMSD Exposure Control Plan Universal Precautions Personal Protective Equipment Hand washing
15 Written plan to protect staff from BBP 1. Identifies staff at risk 2. Identifies jobs and tasks at risk 3. Vaccination program 4. Work practice controls 5. Use of personal protective equipment 6. Post exposure procedure
16 The practice of treating ALL human blood as if it is infectious. o Assists in the prevention of contact with blood and other body fluids o Provides the first line of defense against the risk of exposure o Most important thing you can do to protect yourself and others
17 Specialized clothing or equipment that keeps blood or OPIM from reaching clothing, skin, or mucous membranes Gloves Gowns Eye protection Anyone can have a blood borne illness, even children. Universal precautions must be taken for any anticipated contact with blood or body fluids.
18 Each building principal and each department head will ensure appropriate personal protective equipment is available for employee use. All personal protective equipment contaminated by or penetrated by blood or OPIM should be removed as soon as possible. Employees who use personal protective equipment must place used equipment in a designated receptacle for storage, washing, decontamination or disposal.
19 Provided at no cost to staff Accessible Type of PPE used is determined by task Should be used when there is risk of exposure
20 Gloves Diapering and toileting Care of wounds Clean up of emesis Cleaning blood spills Emptying trash or contaminated laundry Sweeping up or handling sharps containers or other regulated waste Masks Whenever there is risk of exposure due to splashing, splattering, or spraying
21 Check gloves before use for holes, tears, or cracks. Remove contaminated gloves before leaving area. Wash hands after removing gloves. Never reuse disposable gloves. Gloves can be vinyl, latex, neoprene, or utility gloves.
22 Utility gloves may be issued The employee is responsible to inspect utility gloves for punctures, cracks or other problems that would lessen the ability of the glove to function as a barrier. The employee must dispose of gloves that have less ability to act as a barrier to BBP or OPIM. Employees must request new gloves when utility gloves may not act as a barrier to BBP or OPIM.

33 A specific incident, in the course of your job, that results in blood or OPIM exposure through: Non intact skin Mucous membranes (eyes, nose, mouth)
34 This is not always an easy question to answer. Exposure doesn t usually occur if proper protective steps have taken place. Even if blood or OPIM gets on the employee, there may not be a health risk. There is only a health risk if the source individual has an infectious disease.
35 Question 1: Has there been: a specific eye, mouth, or other bodily contact with blood or OPIM? Question 2: Is that contact a result of the employee s duties? The answer to both questions must be YES for an exposure incident to be considered.
36 Immediately! Wash the exposed area with soap and water Flush or irrigate splashes to nose, mouth, or eyes with water
37 Report the incident as soon as possible to your building principal, supervisor, or school nurse. You will need to provide: Details of the incident Times and dates Names of all persons involved A description of exposure

39 Following post-exposure evaluation and follow up, the worker compensation clinic will provide the district with the results of the evaluation. A statement that the employee has been informed of the results of the evaluation and about any medical conditions resulting from exposure to blood or OPIMs which may require further evaluation or treatment.
41 Employees must cooperate and take training relating to blood borne pathogens. Must be completed annually and, Any time your job duties change and put you at higher risk for exposure
42 The district will maintain training records for all employees. The records will include: Date of training Summary of contents Name and job title of employees participating in training Training records are kept for at least 3 years.
