Accidents and Injuries
Just because someone survived an injury or accident does not mean that the aftermath is any less tragic. Industrial accidents can be a traumatic personal experience for co-workers. Besides the potential emotional scarring of cleaning up after a co-worker, friend or family member, retrieval of body fluids by janitorial staffs (even those with blood borne pathogen training) can quickly mount into more than the untrained professional can safely handle. Critical Incident Stress Syndrome (C.I.S.S.) is a very real threat to the well-being of persons that try to deal with these situations.
