Blood and bodily fluid spillages are highly unpredictable and can occur in wide variety of situations, both in public areas and in the workplace. Spillages of blood or body fluid should be considered as infectious and potentially dangerous as blood and other bodily fluids can carry a whole host of diseases, which can easily be transmitted both to humans and other mammals.
When a situation happens, whether in a domestic situation, a suicide, an accident on site or in the workplace or a road traffic accident, everybody is exposed to the potential of infection.
Whilst these bodily fluids are distressing to all concerned, cleaning them up after the event is a difficult and painstaking process, which unless done correctly can still harbour potentially dangerous pathogens and can risk contamination to others.
Bodily fluids like blood, urine, vomit or excrement can infect anyone coming into contact with them. Blood in particular carries some extremely dangerous and life-threatening pathogens like HIV and Hepatitis, so great care must be taken when dealing with them. Specialist chemicals, techniques and safety precautions must be taken, so using an expert like Rapid Environmental Services who understand how to deal with these situations is vital for you and your staff’s protection.
