Trauma and Crime Scene Cleaning

After the police have finished processing a crime or accident scene, the cleaning and restoration process can begin. Many times, crime and accident scenes have blood and other biohazard contaminants that pose a serious health risk. Newark Bioprofessionals will respond immediately and have the specialised training, protective equipment, and experience to safely clean trauma and crime scenes.

Our technicians follow the Australian Government’s Department of Health’s protocols to help transform an unsafe environment back into a clean, safe home or business. Their first focus is always safety, since crime or accident scenes may involve blood-borne pathogens, harmful chemicals, and other dangers. Newark Bio professionals will always treat your property and the people involved with the greatest empathy and respect in the face of trying circumstances.

Common Trauma and Crime Scene Situations:

Crime Scene Residues

From fingerprint powder and evidence-gathering chemicals to tear gas and pepper spray residues, Newark Bio professionals can clean and restore your property after a crime scene investigation.

Bloodborne Pathogens

Newark Bio’s team remove and dispose of bodily fluids, tissue and other potentially pathogenic substances resulting from accident, trauma, crime or death. Our Technicians clean, disinfect and deodorise the structure.

Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause disease in humans. These pathogens include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Needle sticks and other sharps-related injuries may expose workers to bloodborne pathogens. Workers in many occupations, including first responders, housekeeping personnel in some industries, nurses and other healthcare personnel, all may be at risk for exposure to bloodborne pathogens.

What can be done to control exposure to bloodborne pathogens?

In order to reduce or eliminate the hazards of occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens, an employer must implement an exposure control plan for the worksite with details on employee protection measures. The plan must also describe how an employer will use engineering and work practice controls, personal protective clothing and equipment, employee training, medical surveillance, hepatitis B vaccinations. Engineering controls are the primary means of eliminating or minimising employee exposure and include the use of safer medical devices, such as needleless devices, shielded needle devices, and plastic capillary tubes.

Prevention and detection

All Newark Bio staff are immunised against the Hepatitis B Virus. They are educated in a best practice exposure-prone procedure to safely handle contaminated items. Technicians are constantly on high alert for the presence of biological hazards which could threaten the health and well-being of not only themselves and their team, but the home/office’s occupants and anyone else who comes into contact with the environment.

It is vital all trace of these substances be removed and their effects neutralised. Using expert knowledge and the latest in technology and chemical combinations, Newark Bio technicians treat each and every foreign body or material with extreme care.
