The property owner or manager responsible for cleaning up a crime scene must make sure it is professionally cleaned after the evidence is processed and released by the police or the coroner’s office.
All work carried out under this act and the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 must comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
Having responsibility to safeguard the health and safety of individuals who use the premises is a legal requirement for business owners and property managers. This is the reason for them to hire professional crime scene cleaners to do the clean-up.
A health and safety plan should assess the risk of infection posed by exposure to body fluids, and procedures should be developed to remove the biohazard and decontaminate the area. The plan should detail how the industrial complex will decontaminate the area and dispose of the hazardous waste.
You should also conduct a risk assessment to figure out just how likely your premises are that they will need trauma or crime scene cleaning. Once that information is obtained, you should then act accordingly.
