In 1991, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued the Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (29 CFR 1910.1030) to protect workers from this risk of blood or other potentially infectious materials (BOPIM). This standard helps protect approximately 5.6 million workers in the health care industry and related occupations. Biohazard remediation falls within the scope of the BOPIM standard.
The standard provides regulations to protect workers from the risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens such as the Hepatitis B Virus (HBV), Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), and many others.
1st Call Disaster Services are aware that these materials may cause infection to others. During the cleanup process, proper steps are required to always maintain the safety of workers or other individuals near the cleanup site. We will assume all biohazard materials are infectious, and we will treat them accordingly.
Regardless of the scenario or type of biohazard material you are dealing with, it is best to avoid any contact with the materials and call 1st Call Disaster Services right away. Our technicians have the proper equipment including personal protective equipment (PPE) to safely remove any biohazard materials while eliminating the risk of associated health effects. We use powerful cleaning products and disinfectants to thoroughly clean the affected area and restore it to a safe condition.
