Abstract: Presents concise, authoritative guidelines on the precautions that should be followed in order to protect first aid workers from contracting HIV infection following the administration of first aid measures in the workplace. The guidelines, which were developed by WHO in collaboration with the League of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and the International Labour Office, contain general information on the transmission of the human immunodeficiency virus and specific information on risks associated with first aid treatment of injured employees. Topics include mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, treatment of bleeding, the cleaning up of spilt blood, and the immediate steps to take when a first aid worker is exposed to blood. The guidelines also reassure first aid workers that the risk of acquiring infection during mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and the management of bleeding is very low and should not be used as a reason to withhold life-saving procedures. The book concludes with a consensus statement on AIDS and the workplace, including advice on the development of employment policies
