WHAT HAPPENS AT THE SCENE OF HAZARDOUS MATERIALS?
There are many different types of hazardous materials decontamination work. Let’s talk about the most common specialties.
ASBESTOS ABATEMENT WORKERS
Asbestos abatement workers remove asbestos from older buildings – particularly asbestos insulation in buildings that are being renovated or demolished. This often requires night and weekend work in old office buildings, schools, apartments, historic homes, and other structures. First, they apply chemicals to soften up the asbestos, then they cut, scrape, or vacuum it away. Special bags or containers are required for safe disposal.
LEAD ABATEMENT WORKERS
Lead abatement workers remove lead-based paint from older buildings in similar conditions to asbestos abatement. They use chemicals, sandblasters, high-pressure water sprayers, and other techniques to strip the paint, then they dispose of the paint chips and residue in special containers. Lead abatement workers need personal air monitors to measure their lead exposure levels as they work.
ENVIRONMENTAL REMEDIATION/EMERGENCY AND DISASTER RESPONSE WORKERS
Hazmat removal workers are a critical part of environmental remediation – in other words, the planned cleanup of industrial waste. They do the hard, hand-on-work of cleaning pollutants and contaminants from Superfund sites, Brownfield sites, and other affected areas. Similar work is necessary for emergency and disaster response when hazardous materials are released. This includes accidents involving trains or trucks full of hazardous materials, or natural disasters that cause hazmat contamination (think Fukushima).
TREATMENT, STORAGE, AND DISPOSAL (TSD) TECHNICIANS
Treatment, Storage, and Disposal (TSD) technicians ensure that hazardous materials are stored or disposed of safely after they’re no longer useful. Some can be safely destroyed. Others can be treated with other substances to render them harmless. Some substances can only be stored away securely to avoid contamination. TSD technicians may work at landfills, recycling plants, incinerators, industrial furnaces, or special storage facilities. They often operate heavy machinery to move hazardous materials. Often, regulations require careful record-keeping.
RADIOACTIVE MATERIALS WORKERS
There is a cluster of positions that primarily involve radioactive materials and/or nuclear power plants. These usually demand a higher degree of education and training than other hazmat removal work. Radiation protection Technicians use protocols and technology to reduce the risk of radiation leaks and/or mitigate their effects. Technicians monitor, record, and report radiation levels. They’re usually not directly responsible for cleanup, but offer advice on procedure, risks, and potential solutions. Most radiation protection technicians are employed by private businesses or organizations to assist in environmental waste management or remediate. Decommissioning and Decontamination (D&D) Workers remove and treat radioactive materials generated by nuclear facilities and power plants. Demand for this work is highest during refueling, with the potential for periods of unemployment. Recently demand has been higher due to the need to decommission a large number of older nuclear plants.

WHAT IS HAZMAT SCENE CLEANUP?
Hazmat removal workers have an important job: clean up and safely dispose of materials that are harmful to human health and the environment. That can include;
- Radioactive and nuclear waste
- Asbestos, lead, or arsenic
- Any other carcinogens, irritants, or toxic agents
- Combustible, explosive, flammable, corrosive, or otherwise reactive chemicals
By its nature, Hazmat removal work can be dangerous to both workers and the general public, which is why a big part of the job is following safety guidelines created by U.S. and state governments. Hazmat removal is a strictly regulated profession.

Unfortunately, trauma scene cleanup is the responsibility of the property owner. In most cases, homeowners insurance policies will cover the cost of remediation services. However, this is not guaranteed. You need to check with your insurance adjuster to be certain. It’s important to note that insurance companies cannot dictate who you use. We do have experience working directly with insurance companies for our services and can help you with the process.
It is not recommended to try and clean the scene yourself. There is a great deal of state and federal mandates that govern the bio-hazard cleanup industry. State and Federal mandates have been established regulating the collection, handling, and disposal of human bio-hazardous waste. Individuals and companies can face serious penalties for not adhering to these regulations. Personnel conducting hazardous collection and disposal are required to follow specific training and medical mandates set by state and federal agencies.
We are very sensitive to the emotional needs and privacy of our customers. We work in a professional and discreet manner. Upon your request, we can arrive at the scene in an unmarked vehicle and be as discreet as needed. We understand your situation, and we will do everything we can to accommodate you.
