HOW DO WE CLEAN CORONAVIRUS?

Coronavirus has disrupted the lives of people worldwide with its ability to survive on surfaces for up to 17 days, infect people who spread the disease without showing symptoms, and generally being easy to spread and hard to isolate. Calling on professionals with experience isolating and reducing the spread of viruses becomes a matter of life or death.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is still being researched, so we continually consult with the CDC) for up-to-date solutions. The EPA points out that “Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses, meaning they are one of the easiest types of viruses to kill with the appropriate disinfectant product.” ServiceMaster by Jouny  uses CDC approved and EPA registered disinfectants which have been proven effective against similar known viruses which do not spread as easily.

WE CARE ABOUT THE SAFETY OF YOU, YOUR EMPLOYEES, YOUR BUSINESS, AND YOUR COMMUNITY

When selecting a company to provide Coronavirus Disinfection Services, it is imperative that you select a company, like ServiceMaster, that is OSHA compliant and follows all CDC guidance regarding Coronavirus.

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

“Each employer 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.”

Additionally, the coronavirus is not listed as an exception to recording an occupational illness in 29 CFR 1904.5(b)(2). This means that if an employee contracts COVID-19 from another employee or through occupational exposure on a cleaning job, the illness is recordable on the OSHA log for that business. If it results in job restriction, days away or fatality, this is also required to be recorded.

There’s a requirement to contact OSHA to actually REPORT a fatality or hospitalization if it is from Coronavirus. In the case of a death, an OSHA inspection and investigation would follow and could result in a fine if the company didn’t take measures when they knew about it and should have.

WHAT IS REMEDIATION?

To many, biohazard remediation sounds like standard cleaning. In reality, the two services couldn’t be more different. Biohazard remediation refers to the removal, cleaning, and disinfection of blood, bodily fluids, and other potentially harmful pathogens in affected areas after a death, accident, or communicable disease outbreak. Because of the high exposure risk to pathogens, biohazard remediation is a specialty service that requires proper training, equipment, certification, and licensing.
