substances include: hepatitis B hepatitis C human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the virus that causes AIDS All workplaces should undertake a review of their first aid practices to remove the risks of infection or exposure to biological hazards.Hands should be washed using soap and water: before and after contact with an ill or injured person when there is contact with blood or body substances or contaminated items when protective gloves are removed When soap and water is not available, use an alcoholic chlorhexidine hand wash or equivalent. Waterproof dressings should be available to allow first aid personnel to cover injuries. This reduces the risk of an injured person's blood or body substance coming into contact with the broken skin of the first aid person. ]
