Safety & Health of Technicians, Workers and Occupants

Currently, there are very few federal, state, provincial, and local regulations and guidelines directly related to the cleanup of biological and infectious trauma scene hazardous materials. There are general health and safety regulations applicable to businesses that perform such work. Health and well-being are always the priority. Although a company may designate a safety officer on each project, the responsibility for safety and health falls on the shoulders of everyone working on a project.

Heat Disorders

Professionals and workers are at risk of heat-induced stress, especially when engaged in activities in areas like attics and crawl spaces, or while wearing PPE. If the body has to strive to keep cool or begins to overheat, a worker starts to suffer from heat-related illness. This is a general term to describe a range of moderate intensity-related conditions, including “wooning,” heat rash, heat cramps, heat depletion, and heat stroke. Proper administrative controls, such as shorter work shifts and rest schedules, should be implemented to reduce the risks of heat stress.

Lockout

Employees can be seriously or fatally injured if machinery, utilities, or appliances being serviced or maintained experience an unexpected energy surge, start-up, or release of stored energy. When dealing with equipment or devices with which technicians are not familiar, technicians should seek out specialized experts from the client company to guide them in the proper dismantling of the equipment or device. Technicians should be familiar with all relevant applicable laws and regulations that outline the steps required to prevent accidents associated with hazardous energy.
