Biological hazards, also known as biohazards, refer to biological substances that pose a threat to human health.
The term and its associated symbol is generally used as a warning, so that those potentially exposed to biohazardous substances will know to take precautions.
The ways in which biohazards are spread can vary, but include blood, faeces, vomit, urine and mould. Viruses that can be caught through unsafe handling and cleaning are HIV (types 1 and 2), Hepatitis B, C and D, HTLV 1 and 2 amongst others.
It is very important that biohazard waste is cleaned up by a professional, qualified and insured company. Extreme situations such as containing the spread of contagious diseases, police cell, suicide, road accident, fire or flood clean ups, all require a different kind of expertise and often demand emergency support.
