Unattended Death and Traumatic Environments Cleaning
Environments that arise from biohazardous events such as suicides, murders or homicides, crime or trauma scenes, and accidents produce medical waste. Our fully-compliant trauma scene decontamination technicians are experienced in remediation and will respond with the sensitivity and capability needed to resolve the issues inherent to environments affected by biohazardous medical waste.
We clean property such as apartment and homes affected by drug lab residue and/or include blood from a suicide or crime scene. Our processes will restore use to the environment. We also offer safe needle disposal (Biohazard Waste Disposal) for doctors, dentists, clinics, and funeral homes.
Once the emergency responders such as the police and coroners leave the scene of the crime or traumatic event, the family or property owner is facing the responsibility of the remediation of the affected environment. The police and the coroner are not responsible for the biological material left behind. The task assigned to these first responders is to perform the investigation protocol and remove the deceased should a death be involved.
Trauma Scene Biohazard Remediation
Depending on the violence associated with the event, the remaining biological material will vary in concentration and distribution. Not only are the biological factors important but also factors such as the length of clandestine drug manufacturing or the amount of tear gas canisters that penetrated the area.
We understand the challenges that are inherent, emotional and physical, to these biohazardous environments.
Safe, Compliant Processes and Disposal
Obviously, this task is for a professional company who specializes in these OSHA and EPA compliant services related to regulated medical waste. This service is not just a part of a wide collection of diversified services. Biological and drug residue remediation and safe needle disposal are our primary business....Request a Quote.
Our trauma scene decontamination technicians are compliant with the Engineering, Work Practice, and Administrative Controls required to perform this type of work. We are in compliance with Engineering Controls such as Personal Protective Equipment (OSHA 1910.132), Bloodborne Pathogens (OSHA 1910.1030), and Respiratory Protection (OSHA 1910.134).
In addition to the Engineering Controls, got needles?’s trauma scene decontamination technicians are experts in Work Practice Controls such as Confined Space (OSHA 1910.146) and Hazard Communication (OSHA 1910.1200). We adhere to Administrative Controls, such as scheduling due to safety concerns, on a project-to-project basis.
The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) controls waste throughout its life-cycle by establishing standards for waste from its generation to its disposal. One of the best aspects of RCRA is the flexibility it offers private industry in explaining waste classification.
By clearly dictating the handling standards for medical waste, RCRA is a major tool of the trauma scene decontamination technicians in disease outbreak control. In addition to the list of regulated substances banned from conventional disposal, RCRA uses a characteristic system to explain its scope.
Under this characteristic system, any substance that meets any of the components (ignitability, reactivity, corrosivity, or toxicity) is regulated waste. And this regulated waste has stringent disposal requirements. State administrative agencies are authorized by the federal government to implement and enforce hazardous waste regulations. As long as the state program is as stringent or broader in scope than the federal regulation, the state agency is authorized to provide enforcement for RCRA. All authorized state programs are on file with the EPA’s Office of Solid Waste (OSW).
An Environment like No Other
Some environments don’t just fall into a category. Categories may classify various environments, or the projects that remediate them, into components that accurately segregate them. Other environments fall into a category of their own.
These environments are in a category of their own because other categories have no frame of reference to compare to. Those affected are the only ones who truly understand the priority and the sensitivity required to handle these types of environments.
Environments that arise from biohazardous events such as suicides, murders or homicides, crime or trauma scenes, and accidents are unlike any other. Our network of fully-compliant trauma scene decontamination technicians are experienced in biohazard remediation and will respond with the sensitivity and capability needed to resolve the environmental issues inherent to crime and trauma scenes.
