Blood Spill Cleanup

Blood On A White Sink

Let Compassionate Professionals Deal with Blood Spill Cleanup

Biohazard cleanup can be a difficult job in the best of circumstances. Whether the situation involves a serious personal injury or even a death, anyone involved in cleaning up a blood spill must be aware of the safety issues. They must also be sensitive to the feelings of the survivors. Professional crime scene cleaners are not only acquainted with the technology and methods best suited to trauma cleaning; they are experienced professionals who conduct their work with compassion and caring for those affected by the tragedy.

Safety Issues

Today, more people are conscious of the safety issues surrounding the handling of blood and other bodily fluids. Those who work in industries that deal with blood on a daily basis take special precautions to prevent exposure.  This may involve wearing specially designed masks, gloves, and other protective gear, as well as following local and federal guidelines for safe management of hazardous materials. Professionals who are at additional risk of exposure include dentists, blood donor technicians, and lab service workers.

Professional blood and trauma cleanup technicians receive training on the nature of bloodborne pathogens, the proper use of safety equipment (PPE), and the protocols for dealing with biohazardous waste. They are also vaccinated against Hepatitis B. In this way, they are prepared to deal safely with a range of infectious diseases and biohazard situations, including incidents involving:

  • MRSA (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus)
  • Measles
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hepatitis C
  • HIV

An Improper Cleanup Can Be Very Expensive

Companies that attempt their own blood cleanup can face potentially serious consequences if the scene is not remediated properly. Government agencies can assess hefty fines against those that perform an improper cleanup or dispose of biohazardous materials in an improper manner. In addition, if an unqualified employee who has performed a cleanup contracts a serious illness, the company may be held liable.

Human Issues

In addition to physical health concerns, the presence of blood has a profound effect on human emotions. Following a workplace accident, any remaining stains may serve to remind co-workers of the traumatic event. Smart employers may manage feelings of vulnerability in employees by offering counseling, critical incident stress debriefings and other mental health services. A thorough cleanup of the accident site can also go a long way toward reestablishing a sense of normalcy and reassure employees that their well-being is a matter of concern.
