    Default Fire Department Clean/Bio Room

    Does anyone know of a regulation, NFPA, OSHA, whatever, that states how a clean room should be maintained and/or developed? We have a Biohazard room in the station and it has been brought up that the room cannot have anything in it except the bunker washer, sinks, soap, and such. Common sense tells you that it is a clean room and nothing should be kept in the room that is not used for cleaning and sanitizing but the powers that be would like me to find a specific regulation. Any information that anyone can provide would be very helpful.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hamy,

    The closest I found to something specific is NFPA 1581 Fire Department Infection Control Program.

    But you can also go to OSHA.GOV, and look under Bloodborne Pathogens (OSHA 1910.1030), it has bits and pieces to it. Also, OSHA 3128 Also had some bits and pieces. Here in NY the DOH also has guidelines for dirty/clean rooms, so you may want to contact or look up your states DOH site.
