• Maintain a written safety policy.

• Have ongoing safety and health training specific to each job, including whenever new substances, processes, procedures, or equipment are introduced to the workplace.

• Use protective barriers to prevent skin and mucous membrane exposure when any contact with blood or other body fluids is anticipated.

• Prevent punctures through the careful handling of needles, scalpels, and other sharp objects which might penetrate the skin.

• Never recap, bend, or break syringe needles.

• Always dispose of needles and other "sharps" in a puncture-resistant container. "Sharps" containers should be located near where they are used.

• Use safe lifting practices with heavy objects and equipment.
