Biohazard spills must be safely removed by specialist, following established disinfection protocols required by the law.
Any company/ organization must realize that biohazard can be particularly dangerous for their members, customers or employees, so there are regulations, processes and responsibilities that must be taken into account. From their position as employers, companies and organizations are responsible for training their employees, vaccinate them if necessary, as well as for compliance with safety standards and wearing the necessary equipment.
As universal precautions, if employees have been exposed to biological materials and blood, employers must assume that they contain potentially infectious bloodborne pathogens (e.g., Tuberculosis, Hepatitis B or HIV) and ensure vaccination, as well as continual support.
When it comes to handling and disposing safely blood and biological materials, one must comply with federal and state regulations.
