Crime Scene Cleanups
We’ve all seen those crime scene shows at some point in our lives, but what does a crime scene cleanup really entail? It is not as quick, or glamorous as these shows depict them to be. It takes time, the proper tools and professionals to do the job right and to keep everyone safe.
Crime scene cleanup is a term applied to the cleanup of blood, bodily fluids, and other potentially infectious materials. Incidents which may require this type of cleanup include accidents, suicide (or attempted suicide), homicides, and decomposition after unattended death, as well as mass trauma, industrial accidents, infectious disease contamination, animal biohazard contamination (e.g. feces or blood) or regulated waste transport, treatment, and disposal.
PPE (Personal protective equipment) refers to all equipment (e.g. devices, appliances and accessories) that are worn by an individual, in order to provide protection against one or more safety risks. It is required to utilize the correct PPE at all biohazard cleanup sites.
Listed below are the commonly used PPE types:
- Skin protection
