Occupational (OSHA) and Environmental Hazards/Human Feces in the workplace

Some people charge fees for human feces removal, others (depending on the amount) call hazmat to attend to this obvious biohazard. The employer should be required to possess appropriate materials for handling bio-hazardous waste (sharps container for needles, impermeable one-time use gloves for handling/collecting feces, and a sealable plastic bag in which to dispose of the matter. There are no guidelines that I can find either, but this is a common sense approach.
