• CBRNE is a hazardous waste operation and emergency response situation that requires decontamination training for all companies.  Clean Solutions™’ decontamination team receives this training.  We follow the OSHA HAZWOPER guide (29 CFR 1910.120(q).

    We also, as required by law, provide all employees with appropriate levels of personal protective equipment (PPE) under the HAZWOPER standard (29 CFR 1910.120(q)) subpart 1.  The PPE used depends on how hazardous the substance release is, which includes the quantity and potential health effects to workers.  Workers involved in decontamination work should also have proper immunizations including Tetanus A and B.

    Clean Solutions™ offers specialized training through both national and independent companies.  We can create certified restorers by sending our specialists to OSHA and IICRC courses.  These commercial restorers can then specialize in different areas.  The following areas are covered by our commercial water damage restoration specialists:

    • OSHA 10/30 Safety in commercial buildings
    • OSHA Disaster Site Workers – Working in disaster areas
