The threats which can be present at trauma scene clean-ups are now recognised to be considerable, including Hepatitis B and other pathogens. With the recent tightening of health and safety regulations, those overseeing specialist clean-ups have to take this threat to health into account and have a statutory duty to ensure the health and safety of those at the scene and any one who may be affected afterwards.
As a consequence there is a need for an increased level of professionalism of specialist cleaning services, with clients now recognising that in order to discharge their responsibilities properly, they should use cleaning operatives who have been properly trained on an accredited training scheme.
The National Academy of Crime Scene Cleaners was launched in 2009, to provide rigorous training which preserves the health and safety of cleaning operatives and crime scene cleaning operatives, while enabling the police and other bodies to be sure that they are meeting their statutory responsibilities for trauma scene cleaning.
