The Trauma and Crime Scene Technician provides specific information for the proper maintenance and cleaning of trauma and crime scenes. Emphasis is placed on health and safety requirements (including the hands-on donning and doffing of PPE and creating a hazard assessment of the area), structural remediation (cleaning and demo), contents remediation (cleaning and disposal), and the cleaning and disposal of vehicles and industrial machinery (including lockout/tagout and working with industrial site officers). Cleaning and demo equipment will be discussed along with the laws regarding hazardous waste, transport, storage, and disposal.
