Although unfortunate, in the United States, it is an everyday occurrence for a violent crime or serious accident that results in serious injuries or death to happen. Despite that, a lot of people may never be a witness to such a situation or come across it. Even if that is the case, it’s helpful to know what to do if you ever do find yourself in such a situation. Start by calling 911 and keeping your distance from the scene. It’s important to stay away, because of the infective nature of biohazard materials. The only people who should be conducting cleanup of biohazard materials are licensed professionals. They will remove the substances and clean up the scene in a safe manner that eliminates the risk for disease or infection.
