We had a great turnout at our bloodborne pathogen training class for southern Maine funeral directors and attendants. With over 80 people in attendance, it was one of the largest classes in several years. The trainer and speaker was Richard Shepard, Vice President of Operations for Biospecialists. BioSpecialists founder Bill York was also present for the day long training event. It was great to see old friends and meet new directors and their staff of state licensed attendants.
Biospecialists provided Maine funeral home personnel with “BBP”, bloodborne pathogen, training. Annual bloodborne pathogen training is required for Funeral Directors and their associates. BioSpecialists also provided H2S chemical suicide awareness for directors and staff members. Risk of exposure to chemical suicide agents is just the latest threat to those in the industry. This program was a first for many and we’ve been asked to provide more in-depth training statewide to the funeral service providers and staff.
Starting in January of 2012, BioSpecialists expanded training operations into a new training operation, National Biohazard Training LLC. It is a fully licensed training unit designed to help funeral homes to be compliant with OSHA, Federal and State regulations. Training will detail in-house funeral home mandated regulations for proper labeling, BBP, exposure control plans, MSDS, respiratory protection, proper disinfection and house-keeping controls.
BioSpecialists also provides bio-medical waste disposal and transportation, in house controls for proper waste disposal, and required waste record keeping to satisfy OSHA as well as state mandated regulations pertaining to proper disposal. We are the most cost-effective solution for your biomedical waste needs and we guarantee same day pickup.
