What Is Biohazard and Trauma Cleanup?
After a traumatic event—including accident, injury, or even death—occurs, biohazard cleanup encompasses the cleaning, sanitizing, and deodorizing of affected areas until they are once again safe. Even if the area of trauma was a crime scene, legally the property owner is responsible for the biohazard cleanup of the area. However, because such sites often require the proper handling of blood, human or animal remains, chemical spills, and other hazardous materials, the safest choice for everyone is for property owners to call in a professional biohazard cleaning service.
In 1991, OSHA established a standard to protect workers from the risk of potentially infectious materials, such as blood and chemicals. Protective requirements include utilizing personal protective equipment (PPE); correct handling, transportation, and disposal of potentially hazardous materials; mandatory employee training; and strict adherence to work practice controls. A good biohazard cleanup crew will follow these standards during blood and bodily fluid remediation, sewage cleanup, and sanitation, odor control, biological decontamination, hoarding cleanup, and crime scene cleanup
The Dos and Don’ts of Biohazard Cleanup
If a trauma event has occurred on your property, your safety and the safety of others should be your primary concern. The first thing you should do is call emergency personnel and stay out of the compromised area. A qualified team can isolate, clean, and decontaminate all surfaces thoroughly and correctly, neutralize odors, and properly seal away and transport all contaminated materials to a licensed waste facility for disposal.
Though you should not enter contaminated areas, you can still treat all fluids as potentially hazardous. Assume that blood-borne pathogens and other toxic and hazardous substances are present, and do not touch or handle anything. You must also not attempt to clean the area yourself. A professional biohazard cleanup crew will have EPA-registered cleaning products to effectively clean and decontaminate the area and other safety precautions to minimize the risk of pathogens spreading.
