The worldwide coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has people scrambling to protect themselves, their homes and businesses from potential contamination. The effects of this type of biohazard situation can last up to a week and the continued spread of the disease has led to a growing number of fatalities in the US.

How Do We Clean Coronavirus?
Coronavirus has quickly gained a reputation for being particularly insidious. It can survive on surfaces for up to 17 days and people infected by the virus don’t show symptoms until approximately two weeks after infection, making it difficult to track and contain. This is why having a trusted professional disease and biohazard remediation company on your side is so important.
Aftermath Services adheres to all OSHA regulations, is certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning & Restoration Certification (IICRC) and strictly follows the most state-of-the-art procedures when it comes to disease cleanup and disinfection. Coronavirus (COVID-19) is still novel, so our Coronavirus Task Force continually consults with the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) for up-to-date solutions and utilize CDC approved and EPA registered disinfectants. Based on our industry-leading expertise, Aftermath Services has been selected to partner with the US Government for their COVID-19 remediation needs.

Liabilities for Not Taking Precautions
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.
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.
