The Importance of PPE for Biohazard Cleanup
First responders, crime scene cleanup crews and members of the law enforcement community, are often exposed to risk from various biohazards and blood borne illnesses. Risks associated with exposure to biohazards include diseases such as HIV, Hepatitis and MRSA. Many first responders may be unaware of the risks present when dealing with blood and bodily fluids. Exposures are often the result of failure to use proper personal protective equipment (PPE). Visit /3Rs for more information.
