Information about Accident & Crime Scene

The various types of hazardous contamination

Vomit – Highly unpleasant following a person being sick there is the obvious issue with unsightliness and also smell (which in a confined space can make others sick), but if left can also be a direct source for others to become ill. Many pathogens (bacteria especially) breed and live in this substrate which should be cleaned up quickly and correctly.

Saliva – Items contaminated with saliva do not pose a huge health risk, but is highly unsightly and if the saliva contains blood there is a potential risk of a more serious infection.

Blood – Whether from an accident or crime scene blood is potentially the most hazardous substance to human health. The two most widely known infections that are transmitted through the blood of one person to the next are HIV and hepatitis. Although treatable with medical advances today the infection will still remain chronic and involve lifelong medication if caught.

There is a low risk of transmission but given the serious, life-long implications of the above blood spillages should always be handles by a professional team.

Faecal matter (and urine) – Surprisingly we are probably most likely to come into contact with this type of contamination in our daily lives. This may be from an overflowed toilet, animal excrement, deliberate acts (dirty protests or criminal acts), or even smaller quantities which may not be obvious.

How we evaluate and eliminate the risk

The type of contamination will define how we clean and treat the affected areas, but the process will include the following steps.

Speed is key in these cases. A team can be allocated to your site within hours, anywhere in the UK following the call. Once on-site our trained operatives will firstly ensure that they themselves are fully protected wearing the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

The contaminated area will be isolated and sealed (if internal), and the bio-hazard team will remove the excess fluid and seal in clinical waste sacks.

Once the excess fluid is removed the area will be treated with a medical grade disinfectant which will completely eliminate the bacteria and viruses.

All cleaning materials generated will be treated as clinical waste, and as such will be sent by us for incineration at one of our suppliers plants. As licensed waste carriers CleanSafe are trained to handle and dispose of the hazardous waste and, perhaps most importantly, provide you with certification we have made the area safe, and provide you with and waste transfer paperwork for your file.

Potential risks to your health

Bacterial and Viral Infections – There are a wide range of bacterial infections that can result from contact/ingestion of body fluids and many cases of prison officers or police having caught an infection are recorded in the UK each year.

Some infections from contaminated fluid or matter may result in short term illness (food poisoning), others are life threatening (HIV/hepatitis/tuberculosis), but either way it is crucial to reduce the risk and protect your colleagues around you.
