In most jurisdictions some form of OSHA legislation is designed for worker protection that
applies to all persons who may reasonably anticipate contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials in the course of their employment. This includes contact with skin, eyes, mucous membranes or contact from piercing the skin.
Some workers who are at risk
 Physicians
 Nurses
 Emergency room personnel
 Orderlies
 Housekeeping personnel
 Laundry workers
 Laboratory personnel
 Blood bank personnel
 Medical examiners
 Dentists and dental workers
 Morticians
 Law enforcement personnel
 Firefighters
 Paramedics
 Emergency medical technicians
 Medical waste handlers
 Home health care workers
 Employees assigned to first-aid response duties by their employer
 Other workers assigned duties putting them at risk of occupational exposure
There's never time to do it right but always time to do it over.
