As companies prepare to reopen and welcome back their employees, customers, clients, and others, they have to reconsider how they clean. […]
Biohazard cleanup is a service provided by many disaster restoration companies. It involves cleaning, sanitizing, and deodorizing areas where a traumatic event has occurred. Thus, dealing with biohazards often means dealing with blood, human or animal residues, chemical spills, and more.
Keep in mind that the state isn’t responsible for cleaning up a crime scene. After police investigators collect evidence from the scene, it is up to the property owner to hire a biohazard remediation company. A professional cleanup team can arrive onsite only after the police have gathered enough evidence related to the crime.
Every time technicians handle potentially hazardous materials, they are put at significant risk. That’s why following proper training and safety procedures is crucial. It’s important not only for themselves but also for the individuals who will reside in the property after the cleanup is complete.
To become a biohazard technician, obtaining certification is not required. However, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) does require biohazard technicians to properly wear personal protective equipment (PPE) when dealing with bloodborne pathogens.
Furthermore, reputable restoration companies do offer bioremediation training for technicians. That includes learning OSHA’s on-the-job safety methods when handling biohazardous waste. This reduces the risk of accidents and potential lawsuits.
