Proper Infection Control During Trauma Cleanup

It’s an unpleasant topic, one we do not broach very often, but it does happen, probably more frequently than we want to acknowledge.  The topic is trauma cleanup.  Trauma cleanup consists of removal of biological remains (blood, body fluids) after a significant human event, be it by accident or on purpose.  This can happen anywhere; on the street with automobiles, in the home or office or on the sidewalk in front of your home.  Regardless of the location, it is important to remove these biological remains in a safe and timely manner using approved techniques in the biomedical waste industry.

Trauma cleanup is not handled by emergency responders.  When the crisis has passed and the necessary investigations have been performed, the cleanup falls upon you.  Unfortunately, you have enough on your plate dealing with what just happened to be able to focus on the safe disposal of the aftermath.

Ferro Canada’s trained staff can handle the cleanup, removal and proper disposal of biomedical waste in compliance with Provincial Waste Regulations.  Because biomedical waste carries certain blood borne infections and viruses such as HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C, it is necessary to clean, remove, and dispose of it by adhering to prescribed infection control and transmission prevention methods.  Not properly removing biomedical waste in the proper manner can lead to an incident of blood borne infection in the future.

If you are burdened with the task of cleaning up after a traumatic incident, contact us and let the professionals at Ferro Canada help.  Our qualified technicians are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and will handle your cleanup in a safe discreet manner.
