Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms present in blood that can cause disease in humans. Employees who have a reasonably anticipated occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials must be safeguarded against bloodborne pathogens such as HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C. Bloodborne diseases and airborne pathogens can potentially result in serious illnesses and even loss of life.
