The Blood or Other Potentially Infectious Materials (BOPIM) Standard

In 1991, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a standard to protect workers from the risk of blood or other potentially infectious materials (BOPIM). Infectious pathogens include the Hepatitis B virus, HIV, the 2019 Novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and many others.

This standard helps protect approximately 5.6 million workers in the healthcare industry and related occupations, which also includes biohazard remediation companies. Biohazard remediation falls within the scope of the BOPIM standard.

Also, the BOPIM standard has several requirements, including:

  • Conduct a Health and Safety Assessment (OSHA requirement)
  • Using work practice, administrative, and engineering controls
  • Using appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Proper handling, transport, and disposal of hazardous medical waste materials
  • Specific required vaccinations
  • Mandatory training
  • Record keeping

Many blood and bodily fluid remediation events involve the risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens. Following proper training and safety guidelines and procedures is crucial for the personal safety of the cleanup crew and the individuals who will reside in the property after the biohazard cleanup is complete.
