Below are a few courses we would recommend taking for starting a crime scene clean-up and disinfecting business.
First, I would suggest taking our OSHA Hazard Communication Course. This course is required for anyone working with chemicals and will teach you workplace procedures to follow for safe handling, health hazards associated with the chemicals, and proper storage techniques. Anyone working around chemicals are required to have this training per OSHA. This is a 2-hour course and costs $35.
You will also need training in Bloodborne Pathogens. OSHA’s Bloodborne Pathogen standard requires all individuals that may be exposed to infectious human bodily substances (blood, saliva, and other bodily fluids) undergo OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen training. The course is 2 hours long and costs $39.
Then, if you could potentially be the one to handle hazmat small-scale spills or need to know what to do in case there is one then I would recommend taking our First Responder Awareness w/Spill course. This will teach you what to do in case of a spill and how to clean it up. This is about 6- hour course and will cost $79.
Lastly, I would recommend taking our OSHA Respiratory Protection course if you will be wearing a respirator during any clean-ups. This course will cover how to select the best respirator for the job, how use each type of respirator and the limitations and capabilities of each respirator. This is about a 2-hour course and cost $25. You can come and go from each course as you need and will have 30-60 days to complete them and must pass the final exams with a 75% or higher. Once you do this you will receive your certifications immediately.
