Working with tools
Jan 15, 2004

Hi! I was working with a screwdriver on a tough screw, and I stop because my hand was so red. A co-worker came to help and wasn't able either. So I took back the screwdriver to try again, and after trying, I saw that there was blood on the screwdriver. The blood was not mine.

Are there any risks?

Many thanks!!!!!


Response from Ms. Breuer

Rick, Did you have an open cut that came in contact with another person's blood? If not, no problem. From your description, it sounds as though you weren't bleeding. Go in peace.

please help me
