Accidents can happen at work, especially in manufacturing, construction, and other industries requiring physical labor with heavy machinery
When workplace accidents involve blood, body fluids, or other biohazards there are several common responses. Let’s address them one at a time.
“A bloodborne pathogen clean-up kit is all we need.”
This kind of kit usually contains equipment, such as gloves, disinfectant wipes, and red bags to clean a small blood spill. Many companies have them in their warehouse or on the manufacturing floor and they are great for small injuries resulting in a small amount of blood. For accidents involving more blood, bodily fluids spread out over a larger area, blood soaked into materials or supplies, or biohazards actually in the machinery, it is likely not enough. To safely clean-up after these kinds of incidents you need additional protective equipment (PPE), cleaning products, tools, and the expertise to know what can and can’t be cleaned, what must be discarded, and how blood spreads and splatters. On Call Bio New Mexico has all of these and is ready to help!
“My janitorial staff can clean-up the blood.”
Your employees are great at what they do! However, cleaning up a major blood spill is not what they are trained to do. Without the proper PPE, respiratory protection, powerful cleaning products, tools, and procedures your janitorial employees could be exposed to bloodborne pathogens and other biohazards, including viruses such as HIV, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C; methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA); and measles
If the blood is not completely cleaned-up, your other employees may be in danger of exposure too. At On Call Bio New Mexico, we understand the importance of following OSHA, EPA, DNR and other regulations and guidelines. Our technicians have extensive training and we are fully insured.
