Brief Answer:
Your risk for STI/HIV is negligible

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Hand job is the safest sexual activity.
STI/HIV organisms are highly fragile. They can't survive outside the body fluids or outside that atmosphere, not more than few seconds. So theses diseases can't be transmitted through casual contacts like touching.
So not to worry.
You will not get STI/HIV through hand job.
