What Qualifies as a Biohazard?

Biohazards are determined by the CDC and are classified based on the level of risk associated with the hazard. Any scenario that poses a threat to humans in some way is considered a biohazard. The rules regarding these scenarios are designed to protect people from exposure to harmful bacteria, viruses, disease, and more.

These are the most common biohazard scenarios:

When facing any of these unfortunate scenes, it is very important to follow containment, removal, disposal, and sanitation procedures.

What Is Required for Biohazard/Trauma Cleanup?

Both OSHA and the CDC have very specific protocols to follow when it comes to biohazard and trauma cleanup. The CDC manages biohazards and determines what they are and their level. OSHA manages what safety equipment is required based on the level of biohazard.

The rules are very specific, with the lowest threat level requiring minimal protection. However, the higher threat levels require full body suits and breathing apparatuses. Most scenes that contain blood or bodily fluids are in the higher levels simply because you don’t truly know what you might be exposed to.

Biohazard exposure and training applies to people who clean up scenes like these as well as healthcare workers when specific viruses are present or possible. The process doesn’t just include cleanup, either. There are several standards that must be met:

The cleanup is just one part of the process and what you notice the most. Just know that there are many moving parts to cleanup and taking care of any biohazard or trauma situation.

What to Do When You’re Facing a Biohazard or Trauma Scenario

The first thing to remember is that you are not alone. No matter what your scenario might be, you are probably feeling overwhelmed. You may be facing emotional and mental stress, grief, and many other emotions. The last thing you need to worry about is the handling of the scene.

Let us take this burden for you.

If there is a death, crime, or legal situation, your first step should be to call the authorities. They will need to process the scene, and in some cases, an investigation may need to occur.

Once you’ve got first responders handling their part, you can give us a call. We’re available 24/7, so don’t hesitate to call right away. We will start processing the scene as soon as it is cleared for us to do so. In some cases, we may have to wait for investigative purposes while the scene is processed by authorities. We work closely with the responders to ensure their needs are met.

While the cleanup process is happening, you should find shelter with a loved one or in a hotel. This will give you the time to get away from the scene and take care of yourself. Be sure to lean on support and tap into local resources as well.
