What is Bio-Hazard Remediation?
Bio-hazard remediation involves the removal and disposal of waste which has the potential to be dangerous and a threat to human life. A clean-up operation which can be challenging work, technicians are required to handle hazardous materials, which have the potential to transmit a variety of infections and blood borne pathogens such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and Hepatitis B (HPV).
Hazardous materials include, but are not limited to, the following:
⦁ bodily fluids, which can be a source of infectious micro-organisms (bacteria, viruses and fungi)
⦁ hypodermic needles
⦁ razor blades
⦁ other drug related paraphernalia
As well as posing a risk to human health, this waste can also be detrimental to the environment if it is not managed properly and recovered or disposed of safely. The transportation and disposal of contaminated items can only be carried out by a licensed waste carrier.
