Crime Scene Cleanup >> Trauma Cleanup

The following information is a service to the public when you are confronted with the unfortunate situation of cleaning up some kind of crime scene in your home or business. This article can provide you with guidance for a biological Trauma Cleanup but the reader should also be aware that some crime scenes could also involve dangerous chemicals or even explosives that are usually handled in close partnership with HazMat and law enforcement.

  1. The normal, everyday terms for Trauma Cleanup might include trauma cleaning, bio-recovery, crime and trauma scene decontamination, CTS Decon, blood cleanup and bio cleaning. A crime scene cleanup may involve a single blood loss incident following a crime like burglary, assault, or homicide or could involve an incident on a much larger scale. Crime scene cleanup companies also will clean areas following suicides, unattended deaths, and other kinds of crime and trauma scenes. Federal regulations have deemed all bodily fluids to be biohazards, so any blood or tissue at a Trauma Cleanup is considered a possible source of infection and disease from blood-borne pathogens.
  2. You are required to have special knowledge to safely handle bio-hazardous material and to know what to look for at the crime scene. Only companies with certain certifications are allowed to transport and discard bio-hazardous waste shall be used. You might ask, where could I find someone to clean up a crime scene that has happened at my house or business? A very good place to look would be to check out the Yellow Pages of the your local phone book under "Crime & Trauma Scene Clean Up.” There are several Trauma Cleanup companies that are listed providing this kind of specialized service. Can I have someone that works for me clean the crime scene?
  3. No unfortunately, Federal Regulation 29CFR1910.1030 states that no employees can be put in a position to be exposed to any kind of blood spills without first receiving their blood borne pathogen training. Then you must have a written blood-borne pathogen exposure prevention l plan, along with you must have been provided personal protection gear. Next, it is required to have been offered the Hepatitis B vaccine and the exposure evaluation and follow-up. Then a person must be provided with a procedure to remove and properly contain the bio-hazardous waste in properly marked containers for disposal at an approved site.
  4. Then only after these five phases have been reached could a company worker be approved by his or her employer to attempt to clean a bio-hazardous/Trauma Cleanup. Another question that you might have is can't I just use my regular cleaning company or janitorial service to clean up the blood or pathological waste? The answer is, yes you can IF you are absolutely sure that your home or business cleaning service is fully compliant with the five OSHA requirements that are listed above. Otherwise, you cannot legally shift the responsibility for proper Trauma Cleanup remediation to another person or business. You will remain liable for any fines and penalties under law and a possible legal action by your employees.
