If you are wondering how to determine the danger of contamination to which a space or surface may be subjected, read on because today we will tell you how to correctly assess the risk of biological contamination.
The most important and, in some ways, the most logical thing to do before determining the level of biosecurity we face (which may be zero and dangerous), is to carry out a risk assessment to "classify" the type of microbiological threat to which we are exposed.
Once the pathogen or its combination is known in depth through analysis, we can study the best solution to control and eliminate it. In other words, to proceed to disinfection and design the ideal action protocol for prevention and control to avoid its proliferation and/or reappearance.
Differentiating the different types of pollution risks
However, everything we have just told you in the previous section is subject to the hazards and characteristics of the sector in which we find ourselves. biological risk of the sector in which we find ourselves.
Disinfection in mass transit areas such as a metro or train station is not the same as disinfection in a cleanroom. disinfection in laboratories, research centres or cleanrooms where asepsis levels must be at their highest. Just as it is not the same to guarantee biosecurity in airports, military or defence installations as in hotels or schools, to cite a few examples.
The requirements for disinfection and asepsis will always be determined by the business, economic, educational, health, etc. activity we are dealing with and its regulation.
In any case, the assessment of the risk of biological contamination must take into account the properties of the rooms, the surfaces, the possible "biohazardous" material contained or exposed or implicated in any way. It must also take into account the procedures and technologies present in the daily operations of the space to be disinfected and controlled.
Among other things, we should pay attention to:
- The properties of the materials on which disinfection is to be applied.
- The pathogenicity or typology of pathogenic micro-organism.
- The dimensions of the space to be treated.
- The characteristics of the furniture, technical equipment and/or technology.
How it is possible to reduce the biological contamination of a space
Disinfection work, which refers exclusively to work aimed at eliminating pathogenic organisms on surfaces and objects in order to reduce the level of biological and microbial contamination, should therefore be planned well in advance.
In order to perform this task safely, efficiently and effectively, specialised professionals should be used. Professionals who have their company number registered in the Official Register of Biocide Service Companies -ours is ROESB: 1127-CM-ES-.
In short, when dealing with a disinfection of this type, i.e. the elimination of viruses, fungi and bacteriaWhen it comes to the disinfection of a disinfectant, we must check the professionalism and certification capacity of the company that is going to carry out the intervention and offer nothing more and nothing less than the biosecurity and pathogen disinfection services that guarantee the health of people.
