Protection against blood-borne infections in the workplace

Close date: 19 December 2008

The Government consults on an updated version of guidance on workplace situations where exposure to viruses that can be spread by contamination by blood, such as HIV and hepatitis, is possible. The guidance covers what can be done to minimise the risk of blood-borne infections being spread and what to do when exposure to blood-borne infections has occurred.
