What are biohazards and what are the associated risks?
In order to eliminate the risk of infection from viruses including hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV, any space that has been exposed to biohazards (bodily fluids and faeces) needs specialist cleaning and decontamination.
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002, employers are bound by law to protect the health and safety of employees and anyone else entering their premises.
Employers are required to have an effective procedure for the reporting of any incident related to biohazard/s detailed in their Health and Safety plan. This must include an infection risk assessment and clear direction for decontamination of an affected space. This should be completed as a priority, as bodily fluids are liable to soak into absorbent coverings such as soft furnishings and floor tiles and which will not be immediately apparent. This in turn makes the clean-up operation more challenging and heightens the risk of infection.
