Unsanitary or traumatic incidents can often occur in certain areas of law enforcement. These are areas where the risk of infection from exposure is high. Police cars, prisoner transport vehicles, custody areas, police holding cells, prisons and prison cells require specialist cleaning, decontamination and disinfection.
Biohazards resulting from incidents in custodial facilities include bodily fluids such as vomit, blood, spit, urine or faeces. Such biohazards can harbour harmful viruses and bacteria. This is a cause for serious concern as widespread infections lead to diseases.
In recent years, the risk of Covid-19 infection among both prison staff and prisoners also presents a particular problem. When there is a suspected or confirmed case of Coronavirus, the area has to be closed. In such cases, a specialist Covid-19 cleaning and disinfection must be carried out.
A comprehensive and rapid cleaning response is required in prison areas that can harbour biohazards.
Bodily fluids in prison areas where hazardous incidents occur can harbour infectious diseases. In order to prevent any spread of infection, it is necessary to clean, decontaminate and disinfect these areas in a safe and controlled manner.
Following an arrest, bodily fluids such as blood and vomit can be present within the police vehicle or cell. Unruly detainees sometimes defecate or urinate within their cells without using the facilities provided as a form of “dirty protest”.
Rapid decontamination and disinfection is also extremely important due to the confined nature of prison cells and the communal areas. As ‘dirty protests’ are often not just contained within the confines of the individual’s cell, prison walls, ceilings and other fixtures can also be often affected. Communal areas such as the toilets and shower areas are known locations where dirty protests are also frequently performed.
Prison authorities not only need to ensure the clean, safe and hygienic operation of their facilities, but also ensure that operational efficiency is not affected. Hence, it is critical that the amount of time these areas are unavailable for is reduced to a minimum.
The removal and disposal of any biohazard materials needs to be done correctly, following the highest standards and in full accordance with current health, safety and government procedures.
A comprehensive disinfection service with a fast response in emergency situations will help in preventing a spread of disease or infection occurring.
