A PERSON DIED IN MY APARTMENT I NEED TO KNOW WHAT ARE THE RULES FOR CLEANING BODY FLUIDS AND WHERE TO DISPOSE OF THE ITEMS.??Post Comment
Depending on whether you want to dispose of the substances yourself or wish to procure professional cleanup and removal you may begin your search for information on biohazard disposal at the United States Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration ( http://www.osha.gov/index.html ).
Another source of information would be your county coroner's office and/or the 'hazmat' team at your local fire department. The Internet has an endless number of professional services for suicide and blood cleanup, crime cleanup and hazmat removal with 24 hour response availability. Many universities have online procedures and manuals for biohazard spill cleanup as well.
Arizona, Utah and now Georgia. All states that are endeavoring to actually enforce existing laws as well as institute new, stronger Immigration laws. As recently as last month, a U.S. appeals court ruled that an earlier court ruling that blocked parts of Arizona's law from going into effect would be held. This included a provision that would require police to check the immigration status detainees suspected of being in the country illegally. And earlier this week a milder immigration law in Utah was blocked by federal judge. Now the Governor of Georgia has signed a bill that gives law enforcement the authority to check the immigration status of suspects and detainees. The bill also makes private employers responsible for checking the immigration status of new hires. It is not surprising that this bill is not popular with the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials as they predict civil and human rights abuses. However, the states implementing these bills feel it is necessary in the absence of any true federal immigration reform. U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, however, disagrees. She has made statements to the effect that these states are basing their decisions to crack down on immigration on a 'falsity'. She is quoted as saying 'The falsity is that there has been nothing done, that the border somehow is out of control. That is incorrect.' Apparently at least Arizona, Utah and Georgia do not agree with her.Post Comment
