When selecting a company to provide Coronavirus Disinfection Services, it is imperative that you select a company, like Target 19, that is OSHA compliant and follows all CDC guidance regarding Coronavirus.
General Duty Clause, 29 USC 654, section 5(a)(1) requires that employers protect their employees from recognized hazards.
Each employer shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.
Additionally, the coronavirus is not listed as an exception to recording an occupational illness in 29 CFR 1904.5(b)(2). This means that if an employee contracts COVID-19 from another employee or through occupational exposure on a cleaning job, the illness is recordable on the OSHA log for that business. If it results in job restriction, days away or fatality, this is also required to be recorded.
Theres a requirement to contact OSHA to actually REPORT a fatality or hospitalization if it is from Coronavirus. In the case of a death, an OSHA inspection and investigation would follow and could result in a fine if the company didnt take measures when they knew about it and should have.
To most people, biohazard remediation sounds like standard cleaning. In reality, these services couldn’t be more different. Biohazard remediation refers to the removal, cleaning, and disinfection of blood, bodily fluids, and other potentially harmful pathogens in affected areas after a death, accident, or communicable disease outbreak.
Because of the high exposure risk to pathogens, biohazard remediation is a specialty service that requires proper training, equipment, certification, and licensing.

The primary component is a concentration of hydrogen peroxide, universally recognized as one of the safest types of disinfectants for both human health and the environment. Most people are familiar with the hydrogen peroxide that is available in a brown bottle in the medicine cabinet. This is the variety that can go on a wound or used as a mouthwash. Hydrogen peroxide excellent environmental footprint. The solution breakdown components are water and oxygen. It doesn’t get more natural than that. So, you can be assured that it has a very good health and safety profile; you can be confident that your health risk from exposure to it is very limited.
The second major active component is thyme oil which comes from the perennial herb known as Thymus vulgaris. This herb is a member of the mint family, and it’s used for cooking, mouthwashes, potpourri and aromatherapy. Thyme oil is also used as an antiseptic, antibacterial, antispasmodic, and hypertensive treatment.
Other ingredients include a blend of citrus oil and eucalyptus oil, primarily to give the solution a more pleasant scent. The blended solution that is used by Target 19 is safe for human contact with skin, pets, cooking surfaces, and inhalation (of course within reasonable limits).
Electrostatic disinfection sprayers utilize electrically charged tips on the end of the sprayers to add a positive charge to droplets that literally seek out and wrap bacteria, viruses and germ-infested areas in a negatively charged world.
The force of electrostatic attraction is so strong that the droplets can, and will, reverse direction and move upwards, against gravity, to coat hidden surfaces. Electrostatic droplets tend to repel each other and not overlap, which provides for uniform dispersion and virtually 100% coverage of the area that is being sprayed. Therefore being one of the most effective processes to treat an area affected by COVID-19.
