It isn’t mandatory to get a certificate to become a biohazard technician. However, OSHA does require biohazard technicians to correctly wear PPE when handling bloodborne pathogens.

As an example, the state of Georgia passed a law that entails companies supplying restoration services associated with trauma and crime scene cleanup.

PPE ensures that the safety of employees and is the last line of protection. This equipment guards the skin, eyes, mouth, nose, and other body parts from being exposed to hazardous substances. The magnitude of PPE used on each job may vary on different job sites.

The PuroClean Procedure of Biohazard Cleanup

  • First, the cleanup crew will identify the affected areas, completes a health and security test, and determines the magnitude of the biohazard cleanup. Once a plan is devised, remediation efforts begin as fast as possible.
  • Technicians then take action to keep their safety and the security of others close to the cleanup site.
  • Hazardous medical waste, like spinal fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, and other bodily fluids, is handled after OSHA regulations and transferred to a certified hazardous medical waste incinerator.
  • Porous items like fabric and carpets that can not be sufficiently cleaned are disposed of after industry standards and state regulations.
  • Non-porous things are either cleaned using hospital-grade disinfectants if they are salvageable or removed and disposed of if non-restorable.
  • Once cleanup is completed, technicians deodorize the affected areas and will guarantee all the cleaned areas are returned to pre-loss requirements in cleanliness and appearance. One way to guarantee that the areas are cleaned and prepared for occupancy is to get clearance tests done by a licensed Industrial Hygienist.
