Accidents happen. We all know that, but what we don’t know is if someone’s blood is infected with a dangerous disease. Diseased blood looks the same as healthy blood, which is why we need to be extra careful when it comes to handling it.
There is no place that we can say accidents happen the most. Accidents happen in the office, at school, on an airplane, a cruise ship, etc., and you can never be over-prepared for a blood spill. Children seem to get bloody noses the most, whether it is because they are fighting with their siblings or during a sporting event. Depending on how severe the bleeding nose is and if it was caught in time, there might be quite the mess to clean up. Accidents can also happen in the office. Someone’s finger might get caught in a door and break open. Maybe someone used a box cutter the wrong way. Mistakes happen all the time in places we don’t often correlate with danger.
It is important to treat all blood spills as if they were infectious. The Universal Precaution Compliance Kit that Safetec of America manufactures will help you greatly reduce the infectious risk factors we face every day from improper body-fluid spill clean-up.

Antimicrobial Hand Wipe, red biohazard bag, twist tie, identification tag, scoop/scraper, and instructions. The kit comes with instructions on how to properly clean the spill and the proper biohazard disposal items. Always having this kit readily available for any bodily fluid spills can prevent the spread of dangerous infections.
