How Crime Scene Activity Affects Your Insurance Policy

Insurance policies have many variables; while Biohazard or Crime Scene cleanup is often covered, it is very important that you consult your insurance broker or agent to determine your specific policy coverage.

Accidental Injuries or Fatalities

Accidental injuries or fatalities at an industrial site or any commercial location usually presents a number of varying and unusual problems that extend well beyond the presence of fatalities or injuries. These would include the different and unique logistics that come into play whenever you are working with insurance agents and accident investigators. Strictly adhering to OSHA and American Petroleum Institute (API) ‘s occupational safety and health standards, and observing all local, state, or federal guidelines that may be applicable, is imperative.

Bloodborne Pathogens

Many Crime Scene/Trauma Scene 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.
