Many companies and services come and go, but one thing is always a necessity — cleaning. Commercial businesses, in particular, require cleaning services all the time. With that in mind, you may consider starting a business dedicated to cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing for clients. Starting a sanitizing business during the time of COVID-19 will especially come with opportunities to share your services. Discover how to start a commercial cleaning and disinfecting business below to help clean up your community.
People who are interested in pursuing a career in crime scene cleanup often have a lot of questions about the training, education, and certification requirements. It is helpful if they have on-the-job training to prepare them for the work they will perform in the field as well as some basic training that will help them understand what is required and how to stay safe while performing the job.
Because crime scene cleanup and bioremediation is not a federally regulated industry, the level of training provided to crime scene cleaners is ultimately left up to the company for whom they work. However, it is recommended that crime scene cleaners be trained in at least the following areas:
- Bloodborne Pathogens
- Hazard Communication
- Respiratory Protection/PPE
- FRA with Cleanup
Module 1 – BBP: The objective of any crime scene cleaner is to ensure a property is thoroughly cleaned, sanitized, and free of bacteria and potential bloodborne pathogens. Crime scene cleaners help protect themselves and others from potential bloodborne pathogen exposure by following strict biohazard cleaning and disposal guidelines.
Module 2 – Hazard Communication: Knowing the hazards of the cleaning and disinfecting products you will be using is very important part in keeping you safe on the job. You will receive detailed information on the associated risks of these materials to human health and the environment, as well as how to communicate these factors on SDSs. Employees will learn how to create an effective protective program for storage, handling and cleanup.
Module 3 – Respiratory Protection/PPE: Respirator use is common in the Crime Scene Clean-up industry and necessary any time you could be exposed to an unsafe environment. For some jobs, this means wearing a respirator at all times. Other workers may only need to wear protection during service and maintenance operations or in an emergency. Whether for regular use or occasional wear, users are required under OSHA Standard 9 CFR, Part 1910.134 to complete an approved respiratory protection training course — and get certified — to stay compliant. Crime scene cleaners will also be trained on the types of PPE and the proper way to wear PPE.
Module 4 – FRA w/Cleanup: If you store or use hazardous chemicals or may need to clean up non-emergency hazardous spills then you will need to be trained on spill cleanup.
