Advice For RHUers In A Gross Position
It’s actually against most policies to have employees mop up hazardous material issues. And it's not just policy, it’s the LAW in most states.
People just don’t realize they usually have every right to refuse to clean up hazardous materials (unless they are specifically certified) with NO repercussions whatsoever.
If your employer attempts to even write you up for it, you can fight that.
This is especially true for biohazardous waste. I’m sure the CDC and OSHA would be VERY interested in any employer that attempted to force their staff to clean stuff like that when they weren't properly trained and outfitted.
