Post-mortem cleaning is no ordinary cleaning. Why is it different? Because cleaning after death requires very particular know-how and, perfect knowledge and mastery of products to disinfect, decontaminate, and clean a death scene.
Being confronted with death is one of the most traumatic experiences. We can intervene and carry out the clean-up after death to avoid adding further psychological suffering to the families if they had to carry out the clean-up themselves.
Blood is a Biohazard
A Blood Exposure Accident (BEA) is defined as any contact with blood or a biological fluid containing blood and involving:
- Skin penetration
- Projection onto a mucous membrane
- Injured skin
Accidents occurring under the same circumstances with other biological fluids such as:
- Genital secretions
- Cerebrospinal fluid
They are to be considered as potentially contaminating even if they are not visibly soiled with blood as a BEA. Coming into contact with biological substances and blood-borne pathogens poses serious health hazards. These toxic substances contain bacteria that are able to survive outside the body for a very long time. It can even take weeks.
HIV and hepatitis are the most common risks encountered when blood-borne pathogens are involved. Regardless of the nature of the accident, crime, or death, the entire area must be properly cleaned and disinfected.
Do Not Allow Your Employee to Clean Up Biohazards
OSHA Regulation 29CFR1910.1030 requires adequate and comprehensive employee training. Companies must follow strict guidelines before placing them in a position to clean up or manage any incident that could expose them to biohazards such as:
- Body fluids
