Q: What disinfectant does OSHA recommend for protection from bloodborne pathogens?
A: OSHA does not make specific product or brand recommendations but directs employers to consult the EPA-registered list  of sterilants (List A), disinfectants that are effective against tuberculosis (List B), and disinfectants that are effective against Hepatitis B and HIV (List D).
A solution of 5.25% sodium hypochlorite (household bleach) diluted 1:10 to 1:100 with water and prepared daily is acceptable for cleanup of contaminated items or surfaces, according to the OSHA Hospital eTool Housekeeping Web page.
