Coronavirus, or SARS-CoV-2, is an emerging pathogen within the United States and the number of cases continues to rise. Scientists are researching better ways to treat and eradicate the virus and the CDC and EPA are regularly updating recommended procedures. As one of the leading decontamination and disinfection companies in the United States, we are constantly updating our protocols based on the latest information from these agencies to keep our employees and customers safe. We have also incorporated cutting edge protocols and recommendations from similar European agencies to provide the best service possible.
Our team has been working 24/7 providing our clients with decontamination and preventive disinfection services at their commercial facilities. We have helped many organizations reduce their risk and reassure their staff through practical planning, protocols, and preventive disinfection services. We have also helped many customers decontaminate their facility and get Back in Business quickly after a suspected or confirmed case of contamination.
Our Procedures for COVID-19
Are you awaiting test results or suspect someone in your facility to be have COVID-19? The safest course of action is to consider the entire building contaminated and a potential risk to current occupants. It is necessary to find a qualified decontamination company with OSHA HAZWOPER trained personnel experienced in biological decontamination protocols.
We have developed our protocols based on interim guidance published by the CDC, OSHA, and EPA specific to SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19. We have experienced Industrial Hygienists and medical professionals consistently reviewing our operating procedures for compliance. We are also researching effective protocols that have been utilized internationally. Our strategy is to provide practical solutions while maintaining compliance with federal guidance. This ongoing process allows us to execute our mission of providing a smarter, safer, and more efficient recovery for businesses after a disaster.
Offsite & Onsite Surveys
The OSHA HAZWOPER guidelines for biological and chemical decontamination is our baseline for projects that are a threat to human health. The initial step is to collect as much information as possible about the scope and timeline of the project. We will ask some basic questions to help estimate the extent of contamination, type of facility, people involved, and other relevant information. After this offsite survey, you will be provided with a preliminary estimate and plan for decontamination.
After the initial contact, if you have questions that are specific to a specialized department, we will put you in touch with the appropriate expert. Questions concerning the process will be directed to a project manager or higher-level personnel closest to your area, who specializes in virus decontamination. When you are ready to move forward, we will mobilize to your site for an on-site survey to prepare for decontamination.
The on-site survey begins after arrival and starts with verification of the information gathered over the phone. The survey includes establishing safety plans for initial entry into the building, sharing hazard communication plans, and addressing potential complications. The decontamination plan may then be adjusted for your unique project. We may recommend engaging an Industrial Hygienist for protocol review and clearance to further reduce risk. These initial critical steps will lay the groundwork for a successful project.
