Biohazard Cleanup will cover a unique type of cleaning situation. Biohazard cleanup is also known as crime scene cleanup or trauma scene cleanup

Family members and friends of the crime scene victim may experience emotional trauma, sometimes overwhelming emotions, as they contemplate the site of the death or incident. Even cleaning technicians may experience strong feelings or reactions to a crime scene, despite having no acquaintance with the victim.

In addition to the emotional factor, crime scene cleanup involves health hazards for anyone working at the site. Blood, body tissue, and decomposing body parts are associated with serious health risks from contact with contamination.

The course discusses the cleaners who clean up the contaminated materials as well as the customers they clean for. We will talk about bloodborne pathogens and the safety processes used by biohazard cleaners to protect themselves from exposure. We will summarize the OSHA Standards that were implemented to regulate safety at biohazard work sites and what cleaning companies must do to comply with the regulations.

Finally, we will look at some of the procedures cleaners follow when cleaning a contaminated work site where the victim was injured or expired. We will try to understand the circumstances cleaners must work under and why this type of work requires specific worker skills. Certainly, workers need training and preparation for biohazard cleanup.
