OMI’s experience in the field of emergency planning and response is unparalleled anywhere in the world. To ensure a rapid response to all infectious disease outbreaks, all response personnel are HAZWOPER Certified per OSHA 29CFR1910.120, current on vaccinations, and will receive a thorough health & safety orientation before mobilization, upon arrival, and daily, per shift. All operations will be conducted within the established Incident Command Structure and in compliance with the most recent best practices recommended by the WHO and the CDC, response personnel will:
- Establish Work Zones per OSHA HAZWOPER standards.
Personnel decon stations & facilities, site prep, stage equipment, premix approved decontamination/ disinfecting solutions
PROVEN DECONTAMINATION APPROACH
Phase 1: Gross decon removal by removing excess dirt & debris.
Phase 2: Spray solution on surfaces and allow to sit.
Phase 3: Final spray & wipe to remove any remaining solution and/or residue.
Phase 4: Collect & containerize all consumables used in the decon process for proper disposal.
Phase 5: Conduct confirmation wipe sampling, if directed.
Phase 6: Personnel exit hot zone.
OMI, in addition to our sister company Garner, has extensive experience in decontamination/disinfecting operations. OMI also has personnel on staff with experience operating one of only two, state-of-the-art Room Decon System (RDS) and Portable Asset Decontamination System (PADS) in the United States, using a proprietary method for bio-decontamination, sterilizing medical response equipment and hospital rooms.
OMI has served as one of the select companies to work with the USDA/APHIS/NVS under the 3D contractor program for foreign animal disease response from its inception, to include responses for H1N1 Avian Influenza in 2007 and 2015. In addition, both companies have been involved in crime scene clean up and bloodborne pathogen operations on a regular basis.
