If one bite from a zombie will turn you, what about the spattering of blood from punching, stabbing or chain-sawing them?

Same with flame throwers, Molotov cocktails, etc. Diseases have been spread by burning infected corpses.
The only "safe way" to dispatch infectious zombaloids is to lure them into a large sealed concrete bunker and flood it with an alcohol / bleach sterilizing solution. The zombies will then be 'cured' of the infection -- and die. Then macerate the corpses while still in the solution, filter the solids and cremate them, distill out the alcohol and restart the lure.
Since zombies are attracted to sounds and lights, stereo speakers and flashing lights could be used in the lure.
Given the above is speculative at best, I would still think that finding a ethanol or methanol distillation plant or similar between a trash disposal sight and industrial cremation plant for the destruction of toxic waste would be high on the smart zombie apocalypse survivors list...
