Biohazard Cleanup

Bioremediation: A biological process of living organisms (bacteria, fungi) breaking down organic compounds into non-hazardous, non-odorous products. The process may be all natural in origin or enhanced or accelerated by the application of man cultured organisms. Specific to trauma and crime scene cleaning it refers to the use of bacteria to digest and thus eliminate biological contamination (in this case blood, body fluids, decomposition fluids and fecal material).

All infectious or potentially infectious waste shall be packaged in a properly colored biohazard bag labeled with the biohazard symbol. It shall be placed into an approved biohazard container with the appropriate biohazard labels and symbols. All packaging shall be closeable/sealable and able to sustain transport without leaking or opening. Any non-contaminated items should be thrown out as normal commercial waste.
