SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19

COVID-19 is a disease caused by a coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2. Coronaviruses are a large family of RNA viruses that are common in people and many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats. Rarely can animal coronaviruses infect people and spread between people such as with MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV, and now with this novel virus. The SARS-CoV-2 virus is a betacoronavirus, like MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV. All three of these viruses have their origins in bats. The sequences from U.S. patients are similar to the one that China initially posted, suggesting a likely single, recent emergence of this virus from an animal reservoir.

PRESUMPTIVE CORONAVIRUS CONTAMINATION RESPONSE


  • A risk assessment is completed prior to planning logistics of remediation.
  • Establishing safety zones and staging of tools and equipment. Personal protective equipment (PPE) is donned. Sometimes negative pressure containments are built.
  • All frequent contact surface areas should be cleaned with detergent and microfiber cloth.
  • Application of an EPA registered and CDC approved broad spectrum hospital-grade disinfecting solution with an emerging viral pathogenic kill claim.
  • ATP Testing to ensure effectiveness the cleaning process had on surface hygiene.
  • Break down of safety zones and decontamination process of personnel, tools, equipment, and trucks are completed prior to leaving every job-site to prevent cross contamination.
  • Waste generated should be legally disposed of in medical waste.


Pandemics are an extremely serious issue and we understand that the privacy, health, and safety for you, your family, employees, and property are at stake. Don't risk hiring companies making false or misleading claims, who are unqualified to perform biohazard remediation services.


ATTENTION EMPLOYERS:


General Duty Clause, 29 USC 654, section 5(a)(1) requires employers to protect their employees from recognized workplace hazards. 


“shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.”

Furthermore, SARS-CoV-2 is not listed as an exception to record an occupational illness as displayed in 29 CFR 1904.5(b)(2). If an employee becomes ill with COVID-19 through other employees or through occupational exposure on a cleaning job, the illness is considered recordable on OSHA's log for that enterprise. If resulting in job restriction, sick days, and even death, this is also mandated to be recorded.

It is mandatory to contact OSHA to report fatalities or hospitalization if caused by Coronaviruses. In the instance of death, an OSHA inspection and investigation will follow suit and could result in a large fine if the company didn’t mitigate risks if they were aware about it and should have.


When searching for a company that specializes in possible coronavirus mitigation services, it's crucial that you select an OSHA compliant company such as Biohazard PRO.
