Such incidents may include accidents, suicides, homicides, and decompositionafter unattended death. It could also include mass trauma, industrial accidents, infectious disease contamination, animal biohazards (e.g. feces or blood) orregulated waste transport, treatment, and disposal (From Wikipedia).
