In case of exposure, follow these steps:

  2. If you are wearing gloves, remove the gloves (follow proper methods as shown below)
  3. Wash your hands with soap and large amounts of water (as demonstrated in the diagram below)
  4. Report the incident to your employer or supervisor
  5. Seek medical attention as advised by employer

“If you are stuck by a needle or other sharp or get blood or other potentially infectious materials in your eyes, nose, mouth, or on broken skin, immediately flood the exposed area with water and clean any wound with soap and water or a skin disinfectant if available. Report this immediately to your employer and seek immediate medical attention.” – OSHA
