Blood on a Plane: The Hazards and Risks for Travelers

With no place for travelers to run, such situations must be handled quickly and correctly.

Bodily fluids, such as blood, vomit, and diarrhea, can be dangerous contaminants, no matter where they appear. But when you’re traveling on an airplane, there’s little to no opportunity to vacate the scene.

For this ISSA Cleaning Industry Alert, Dr. Gavin Macgregor-Skinner, senior director of the Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC), a Division of ISSA, specifically discusses what happens when blood contaminates a plane and how the cleaning industry should respond to such situations.

To hear his advice, watch or listen to the complete episode of Straight Talk! below.
