The problem of blood exposure accidents in the hospital is a real concern for the hospital administration, even for health professionals, because of the serious illnesses they cause. To prevent the occurrence of BEA in the hospital, the mutual commitment of operators and managers is essential to improve care practices through innovative solutions (attitudes, mindset, culture of change). This work aims to provide a first overview of the application of the ISO 31000 standard guidelines on the problem of BEA in a public hospital, starting with the perception of risk according to the INRS model, the identification of potential causes by Reason's model, the evaluation and prioritization by the FMECA method, and finally, proposals for improvement to control the risk of BEA among care professionals.
