Category 3 Bio Hazards
A category 3 bio hazard may arise from a minor incident involving a single person (usually) and may require vomit/faeces/blood cleanup – and the clean-up of other bodily fluids. The area affected will be limited, with nominal spread or splatter. The task of eliminating any biohazard risk should be fairly straight forward.
A single bio hazard cleaner may be able to clean the scene on his or her own.
Examples of category 3:
- Act of violence requiring crime scene cleaners
- Minor industrial accident
- Flesh Wounds,
- Presence of sharps
A bioengineer, having achieved a Primary Qualification, is legally permitted to work on the decontamination of category 3 bio hazard scenes, together with all other categories. A bio first aider, with a Secondary Qualification, can also attend category 3 incidents without the supervision of a bioengineer.
