    What advice would you give to a newbie starting this Module?

    1. Use NZ govt websites for the research activity to get relevant info

    1. Admin bar avatar

      Great tip there at the end!

  7. Admin bar avatar

    1. What a biohazard is
    2. The spread of viral infections through droplets by sneezing, coughing or just by talking.
    3. The three entry points for microorganisms to enter e.g respiratory, broken skin/bloodstream and swallowing.

    1. understanding the risks between salon worker and client
    2. The steps to prevent exposure.
    3. Being careful of whats on my workspace to possibly the exposure of biohazards.

    1. Lower risk of infection, if infected blood comes into contact with skin that is already broken due to a health condition.
    2. Hepatitis B is most likely to be spread through the blood.
    3. The harmful effects biological hazards have to human health e.g Infections, allergies and poison.

    1. Sanitisation/disinfection and GLOVES!
    2. Treating and bodily fluids or blood contact as potentially infectious.
    3. Blood spill procedure

    Note Taking is still my biggest friend!

    1. Admin bar avatar

      Awesome 🙂

  11. hat are three things you’ve absolutely nailed in this Module?

    1. what to do to avoid exposure

    2. Thinking about steps I can put in place for my own salon to avoid biohazards

    3. Good notes for what to do in a blood spill

    2. general bio hazard risk

    3. be super careful with any broken skin

    What are three things you will never forget?

    1. Admin bar avatar

      Flash Cards for blood spill is a great idea!

  12. Admin bar avatar

    What are three things you’ve absolutely nailed in this Module?

    1. Researching the biohazards activity. I use to work in specimen reception at the medical lab so this has helped me a lot with this whole module on biohazards.

    2. The quiz there super fun, and they make you think about what you have just revised with Penny through the video lessons

    3. Learning about the biological sunstance – and the off sets that occur, like respiratory system, Bodily fluids and swallowing.

    What are three things you really need to continue to work on?
    1. Trying to improve ways of learning so as to retain all the information, preparing for the exam.

    2. Maintaining a good work system, believing that everyone is contagious so as to protect yourself and your clients.

    1. That HIV is low risk.

    2. That HEP B is high risk. I’m actually an embalmer and its the HEP C that we get worried about as with HEP C it can live on hard services for 14 days before dying so the risk of contracting this off hard services is paramount for cleaning – disinfection after every use thoroughly.

    3. Contracting all of these is quite scary when you think how on earth when your a nail tech, but certainly has changed me as can come across these situations in everyday life.

    What are three things you will never forget?

    1. To completely disinfect every service in my salon.

    2. To protect myself and my clients, being careful around any skin lesions the client or myself may have.

    2. What a Biohazard is, and examples of that.

    3. Treating/acting every client as though they have HIV to minimise risk as much as possible

    What are three things you really need to continue to work on?

    1. To internally stay calm if someone discloses that they have an infectious disease, and trust that if I follow my strict health and safety procedures the risk is little to none.

    2. Explain to my clients why I’d be wearing PPE to ease their mind.

    3.
