The Blood or Other Potentially Infectious Materials (BOPIM) Standard

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) posted a standard in 1991 to help guard all workers from possible dangers of blood or other potentially infectious materials (BOPIM). Hepatitis B virus, HIV, the 2019 Novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and many more are examples of Infectious pathogens.

Approximately 5.6 million workers in the healthcare industry and related positions are helped by this standard. The biohazard restoration and cleaning Industry is also covered under the BOPIM standard.

Additionally, the BOPIM standard includes several requirements, including:

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

Common Biohazard Situations

  • Crime or homicide scenes
  • Suicide or death
  • Blood and bodily fluid
  • Hoarding scenes
  • Animal waste or remains
  • Chemical hazards
  • Coronavirus contamination

PuroClean technicians face significant dangers each and every time they handle items that are potentially hazardous. For this reason, the implementation of proper training and safety precautions are critically important. The training and safety methods are important for both the technicians working on the project as well as the tenants who will be occupying the space once the biohazard remediation is complete.

Is Certification Needed to Perform Biohazard Cleanup?

Biohazard technicians are not required to procure a certificate for their employment. However, biohazard technicians are required, by OSHA, to wear appropriate PPE while working with bloodborne pathogens. Furthermore, for workers to perform biohazard restoration, local, city, state and federal regulations may call for licensing requirements. Regulations may be in place that call for the technicians to be subjected to background checks, fingerprinting, or further actions. Georgia’s requirements are a prime example. The state passed legislation that affects businesses who provide trauma and crime scene restoration.

PPE is the final line of defense and aids to ensure the safety of workers. PPE equipment stops hazardous material from reaching the body through the skin, eyes, mouth, nose, or any other area. Although PPE varies from job to job, it should always have full-face protection, cut resistant and nitrile gloves, properly designated waterproof coveralls, and a respirator.

Reputable restoration companies offer biohazard restoration training for workers. Learning OSHA’s on-the-job safety methods for handling biohazard waste is a significant part in the coursework. The technician’s training greatly lessens the risk of potential lawsuits and injuries from accidents.

PuroClean Biohazard Cleanup Process

  • The first task of the restoration crew is to inspect and identify all areas that need biohazard cleanup, perform a health and safety inspection, and identify the magnitude of the biohazard cleanup. When the technicians have a plan in place, restoration will start immediately
  • All technicians will take measures to ensure their safety and that of anyone near the biohazard affected areas.
  • The PuroClean technicians will then eradicate and dispose of all possibly infectious materials from your property.
  • OSHA rules dictate exactly how hazardous medical waste is to be handled. For example: spinal fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, and any other bodily fluids are carefully handled and transported to a licensed hazardous medical waste incinerator.
  • Per state regulations and industry guidelines, technicians are obligated to eradicate porous materials like fabric and carpeting that cannot be sufficiently cleaned.
  • Non-porous items that can be salvaged will be cleaned with hospital grade disinfectants. If these items are non-restorable, our technicians will cart off and dispose of these items.
  • Following the cleaning process, technicians deodorize all affected areas and return these places to pre-contamination shape and appearance. One procedure that proves areas are fully cleansed and ready again for occupancy is to have a licensed industrial Hygienist conduct clearance testing.
  • Odors can normally be controlled by the eradication of unsalvageable contaminated materials and by cleaning items with hospital-grade disinfectants. However, difficult situations may call for further procedures of deodorization to accomplish success.
