Have a voice on viruses

The proposed guidance is intended to cover workplace situations where there is a risk of exposure to blood-borne viruses (BBVs). Aspects of virology, legal issues, controls, and recommended actions post-exposure are presented.

A key aim of the guidance is to provide links to specialist guidance where it already exists.

It is now 12 years since the current guidance document, Protection against blood-borne infections in the workplace: HIV and hepatitis, was last published.

Consultation on the updated proposals ends on 17 November. To view the draft guidelines, and respond online, click on the link below.

We provide an insight on how to tackle burnout and why mental health is such a taboo subject, particularly in the workplace.
