Hep c transmission via cuts
I apologize for a stupid question, but I'm having some anxiety over hepc/Hiv transmission. How easy is it transmitted?

For example, if I have a small cut on my hand, then handle a box of band aids that are in a kit at work that's used by the whole plant, is it possible to get it this way?  Assuming someone that was bleeding handled it recently, and they had HCV. Is that a possibility so far out there that I shouldn't give it a second thought?

Just trying to assess if my anxiety is founded, or way overblown.

  You might have OCD,HIV and HCV  are blood borne diseases.HIV virus dies quickly outside the body,HCV can survive up to 6 days outside the body.If you see blood on  the first aid kit or  the bandages just don't use them.
