Homicide cleanup in Wisconsin

Homicide cleanup in Wisconsin was required the other day and Scene Clean earned the business.  Scene Clean has become a leader in the Twin Cities for blood and trauma scene clean up.  This particular Scene was in Hayward Wisconsin.  The incident was reported on every local news station.  The clean up portion of an incident like this requires total professional decontamination.  The Federal Government unit that operates under the name OSHA monitors the standards in which situations like this are to be cleaned up.  Most victims are unaware that insurance will typically pay for the entire cleanup.  It’s unfortunate that many people are unaware of this as the remains can be devastating to the health of anybody who comes in contact with biohazard remains.


Here is a definition from OSHA regarding regulated waste, and the link where it was found …click here OSHA Link .

Regulated Waste means liquid or semi-liquid blood or other potentially
infectious materials; contaminated items that would release blood or other
potentially infectious materials in a liquid or semi-liquid state if compressed;
items that are caked with dried blood or other potentially infectious materials
and are capable of releasing these materials during handling; contaminated
sharps; and pathological and microbiological wastes containing blood or other
potentially infectious materials.


This is also interesting.  See this definition about source individual.

Source Individual means any individual, living or dead, whose blood or
other potentially infectious materials may be a source of occupational exposure
to the employee. Examples include, but are not limited to, hospital and clinic
patients; clients in institutions for the developmentally disabled; trauma
victims; clients of drug and alcohol treatment facilities; residents of hospices
and nursing homes; human remains; and individuals who donate or sell blood or
blood components.
