Biohazardous Waste Disposal - What to Do If You’re Exposed

Biohazardous Waste Disposal - What to Do If You’re Exposed - Bio-One of Oceanside.

Bio-One of Oceanside is available 24/7 - 365 days a year, to clean, disinfect and remediate areas from blood spills and bodily fluids. Our technicians are highly trained in biohazardous waste disposal practices to ensure these scenarios are remediated safely.

Exposure to bloodborne pathogens and biohazardous waste can happen in various occupations and circumstances. Medical and emergency personnel, for example, are constantly dealing with biohazardous material; they follow strict guidelines and procedures to ensure their safety and the safety of the people around them.

Immediate response to biohazardous waste exposure is crucial

Traumatic events like crimes, car accidents, and sudden death usually involve blood and bodily fluids that only professionals must clean. 

Attempting to clean these scenarios without the proper training poses a risk of infection for everyone involved, not to mention the emotional trauma that goes with taking care of these situations. This includes blood, human body fluids, a combination of bodily fluids and blood, mucous membranes, mycotoxins, and any surface/item visibly contaminated by biological pathogens. 

Blood and bodily fluids can linger on surfaces for long periods of time, and they carry dangerous bacteria and diseases, even dry. Exposure to bloodborne pathogens and biohazardous waste can happen from sharp objects/needles, cuts, scratches, bites from infected animals, mucous membrane contact, skin contact, and non-direct contact (being in the presence of highly contaminated areas and surfaces).

What to do if you’re exposed to biohazardous waste

Immediate response to biohazardous waste exposure includes:

  • Removing contaminated clothing and equipment.
  • Wash with soap and water any body part that might be contaminated by blood and bodily fluids. If you experience scratches or cuts, wash with abundant water and soap. 
  • If your mucous (eyes, nose, mouth) were exposed to biohazardous waste, wash with abundant water and soap for at least ten minutes.
  • Look for medical attention, no matter how minimal or large the level of exposure might seem.

Bio-One of Oceanside's specialists works with first responders for immediate biohazardous waste disposal services in North San Diego County. Our specialists remediate scenarios from traumatic events like crime scenes, suicide, blood spill, undiscovered death, and situations involving biohazardous waste. We are always available to assist families and victims in their greatest time of need.

Seek professional assistance

Usually, when tragedy and traumatic events take place, there’s a police investigation and medical staff who takes care of removing the bodies and remnants from scenes. After investigations are completed and coroners leave the scene, thorough cleaning and disinfection must be conducted to avoid disease and infection outbreaks from bloodborne pathogens. 

It’s important to avoid exposing maintenance crew and cleaning companies when blood and bodily fluids are present. The best thing to do is leave it to have a biohazardous waste disposal company take care of the disinfection and decontamination process.
