Healthcare Waste Management

The term healthcare waste covers a large variety of waste types, some of which are hazardous. Healthcare waste can include:

Bandages and dressing
Human tissue
Animal tissue
Blood and bodily fluids
Old medical equipment
Contaminated packaging

It is essential for businesses who produce healthcare waste to ensure that it is correctly separated. Mixing hazardous waste types is a breach of Duty of Care regulations and, therefore, can carry heavy consequences for any business or organisation involved.

Ensuring the correct separation may be a necessity, but it can be a complex process for businesses who do not posses the requisite waste management experience.
