Bio-hazard Trauma

On trauma and crime scene cleanup projects, elimination is the goal. Physical removal and proper disposal of the contamination is the primary means of remediation. The contamination should be physically removed from the structure, systems, and contents when possible. Engineering controls when appropriate shall be used. Usually the most viable hazard controls available to the SERVPRO Franchise Professional on trauma and crime scene cleanup projects is administration or work practices and personal protective equipment. Personal protective equipment does nothing to eliminate the hazard itself, but does reduce risk and offer protection to the employee from the hazard. The employer shall determine what form of personal protective equipment is required based on the hazard assessment.
