In this Infectious Diseases and Biohazard Decontamination course, students will learn how to effectively perform infectious disease control and biohazard remediation services. Specifically, students will learn how to contain and decontaminate areas following the S540 and ISSA Commercial and Institutional Standard.
Biohazard decontamination is one of the most in-demand restoration services, but it's also one of the most complicated. This type of specialized restoration involves working on crime scenes, condemned homes, chemical spills, and other dangerous areas. Without proper training, it's easy to spread diseases through improper cleaning and containment techniques. Furthermore, it takes training to know which type of cleaning technique should be employed on specific surfaces. For example, can you use bleach-based cleaners on wood floors? How do you accurately measure levels of contamination? What is the difference between sanitization and disinfection? If you struggle to answer these questions, consider this Infectious Diseases and Biohazard Decontamination course.
