A biohazard is defined as an organism, or a substance derived from an organism, that poses a threat to human health, animal health, or the environment. Exposure to bio-hazardous waste and their related contaminants can pose serious health consequences. Failure to properly remove biohazard substances contributes to unhealthy and dangerous environments. Bio-recovery services must occur in any structure where bio-hazardous waste is present to ensure the home or business is restored to a healthy environment.
There can be substantial legal implications for failing to conform to OSHA's Blood borne Pathogens Rules, and State and Municipal Sanitary codes and laws. To minimize your exposure to potential legal difficulties, it is important to hire a bio-recovery company that is trained to properly handle biohazards, who is insured, who is discreet, and who is experienced. Bio-recovery services are often covered by insurance policies.
