In many cases, dealing with biohazard materials means working with chemical spills, blood, human or animal remains. A traumatic accident that resulted in injury or death are circumstances that call for biohazard cleanup. The actual biohazard cleanup consists of cleaning, applying EPA approved hospital grade disinfectants, and deodorizing locations where traumatic events have taken place.

Biohazard Cleanup Services Include

  • Sewage Cleanup and Sanitation
  • Virus Decontamination and Protection
  • Blood and Bodily Fluid Remediation
  • Hoarding Cleanup
  • Crime Scene Cleanup
  • Deodorization and Odor Control

Bear in mind that state employees aren’t required to clear crime locations. When Police and investigators are finished gathering their evidence, the burden falls to the owner of the property to arrange biohazard cleaning professionals. Only after police have collected pertinent evidence and have released the scene will biohazard cleanup professionals start their work.

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 dangers 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 close to 5.6 million employees in the healthcare field and similar occupations, which also includes biohazard remediation companies. Biohazard restoration falls within the coverage of the BOPIM standard.

The BOPIM standard also has several requirements, as follows:

  • Record keeping
  • Mandatory training
  • Specific required vaccinations
  • 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)

Common Biohazard Scenarios

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

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

Is Certification Required to Perform Biohazard Cleanup?

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

To help ensure the safety of our workers, PPE is used as the last line of defense. PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) protects the body from coming into contact with hazardous materials, via the skin, eyes, mouth, nose, or any other area. PPE requirements change depending on the job, but needs to always include cut resistant and nitrile gloves, full face protection, appropriately designated waterproof coveralls, and a respirator.

Reputable and trustworthy remediation firms train their technicians to work in the biohazard restoration industry. This training includes implementing OSHA’s guidelines for handling biohazardous waste. This training protects everyone involved: technicians, bystanders, and future occupants. Furthermore, the risk of accidents and potential lawsuits is limited greatly.

The PuroClean Process of Biohazard Cleanup

  • The first step of the remediation crew is to inspect and identify all areas needing biohazard cleanup, perform a health and safety inspection, and identify the scope of the biohazard cleanup. When the technicians have a plan in place, restoration begins immediately
  • All technicians will take measures to ensure their safety and that of anyone near the biohazard affected locations.
  • The crew will then remove and dispose of all potentially infectious materials from your property.
  • OSHA rules dictate exactly the way hazardous medical waste is to be handled. As an example: spinal fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, and any additional bodily fluids are carefully handled and moved to a licensed hazardous medical waste incinerator.
  • According to state regulations and industry standards, technicians are obligated to eradicate porous materials such as fabric and carpeting that cannot be properly cleaned.
  • Non-porous items that can be salvaged will be cleansed with hospital grade disinfectants. If these items are unable to be restored, our technicians will cart off and dispose of these items.
  • Following the cleaning procedures, technicians deodorize all affected locations and return these places to pre-contamination shape and appearance. One procedure that proves areas are completely cleaned and ready again for habitation is to have a licensed industrial Hygienist conduct clearance testing.
  • Odors can normally be managed by the eradication of unsalvageable contaminated materials and by washing items with hospital-grade disinfectants. However, tough situations may call for further procedures of deodorization to achieve success.

Cleaning and the use of hospital grade cleaners of frequently touched objects and surfaces are the required actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, like coronavirus. Since any surface can be re-contaminated after cleaning, and because the coronavirus is also spread person-to-person, PuroClean’s cleaning services are not guaranteed to thwart the spread of coronavirus. Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html) for more information regarding coronavirus, its spread, and prevention.
