Bloodborne Pathogen

Bloodborne, also called BBP,  pathogens are infectious micro-organisms which include Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV. They are transmitted through infected human blood and other bodily fluids. Mostly at risk of exposure to BBP are Tattoo artists – from incidents such as an accidental puncture from a contaminated needle. Thus, it is important to stay informed about Blood borne pathogens and to take appropriate safety measures.

People who work as tattoo artists, SPMU, piercers need to pass the Blood borne pathogens training in compliance with the law and keep that formation updated regularly. The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) sets the federal standards for that training. Those standards consist of rules describing the methods employers must apply to protect their employees from hazards – such as Blood borne pathogens.
