Is bleach the best cleaner to use?
Bleach rarely used by industry professionals. With such a potent coronavirus, the best cleaning agent is a commercially made EPA registered cleaner.
One that is tested to disinfect and one that does not discolor the surface areas it cleans.
What special protective equipment is needed?
There are specialty suits (like Tyvek), rubber gloves, face masks, booties, safety glasses & caps.
What does OSHA say about employees whom are asked to clean?
OSHA has a strict code that protects employees.
The basis of its guidelines are that the employee can only be asked to clean this contamination if the employee is OSHA certified trained and the employer supplies all the protective equipment needed to perform the COVID-19 cleaning safely.
The guidelines are more extensive, but they are designed to protect the employee.
