Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause disease in humans. These pathogens include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Needlesticks and other sharps-related injuries may expose workers to bloodborne pathogens. Workers in many occupations, including first responders, housekeeping personnel in some industries, nurses and other healthcare personnel, all may be at risk for exposure to bloodborne pathogens.
Noise damage is different from most other occupational injuries. It causes no pain or visible trauma (the ears do not bleed when hearing is being damaged), it leaves no visible scars, it is unnoticeable in its earliest stages (workers with noise-induced hearing loss often do not even notice themselves that they are losing hearing until it is too late), it accumulates with each over-exposure, and it generally takes years to diagnose. But Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) is permanent and 100% preventable.
Asbestos exposure can cause a number of deadly diseases and they can take a long time to develop—up to 40 years.
