Portland, ME, United States, 2013/06/04 - BioSpecialists will provide biohazardous materials cleanup and remediation at FAA controlled locations in Maine and New Hampshire - Bio-Specialists.com.
BioSpecialists, LLC, a biohazard cleanup company from Gorham, Maine, announced today that they will be the exclusive provider of biohazardous materials cleanup for several airport locations in the Northeast. The areas covered are those that are in FAA control and include the airports and equipment locations in Biddeford, Cumberland, Brunswick, Kennebunk, Wiscasset, Fryeburg, Auburn/Lewiston, Freeport, Scarborough, as well as the Portland tower, flight lines and FAA buildings, all in Maine. It will also cover White Field in New Hampshire. The Portland terminal is not included, as it is not FAA controlled.
BioSpecialists will be involved on a case-by-case basis, and would be called anytime there was a potential for biohazardous contamination in one of these areas. An example of this is if a baggage handler got cut while working on the runway. BioSpecialists would then come in and remediate the scene, making sure there was no spread of bloodborne pathogens.
The most significant risk at a trauma scene is from contact with blood and bodily fluids. Since 1991 health and medical care officials have recognized the danger of contact with bloodborne pathogens which may be contained in any spill of blood and body fluid.
Bill York, President and CEO of BioSpecialists, notes that the FAA has taken a very proactive step in partnering with BioSpecialists. “We are pleased that the FAA is thinking ahead and getting ready to respond to dangerous situations involving biohazardous materials. We are very excited about working with them, and helping to keep the public safe.”
Biospecialists (bio-specialists.com) is a Maine-based company, experienced and qualified in death and trauma cleanup, biohazard cleanup, and medical waste transportation throughout New England. Their team members are fully licensed and bonded.
