Description:

All full time employees in the Police, Fire, Juvenile Detention Home, Drainage, and Wastewater departments are offered the hepatitis A and B vaccines at no cost to the employee. They are informed of the availability of these vaccines in new employee orientation and in safety meetings. I speak to all departments at safety meetings about the risk of hepatitis exposure, how to keep from getting exposed, when and where to be tested.

I have also written a bloodborne pathogen exposure plan for our organization. This has allowed us to get information for a know source that has exposed an employee and gives employees directions on what to do if they are exposed to blood or body fluids to make evaluation and treatment more effective and efficient.
