If your facility is one of the 38,000 located in Florida that generates biomedical waste on a yearly basis, then you know how important it is to remove it properly. Not only can it be a danger to workers and staff at the facility, but it also poses a risk to the general public if it’s not handled and stored properly by professionals.
This explains why the Department of Health and Department of Environmental Protection have responsibilities to regulate the process. Just think for a moment, are any of these facilities located near your house or neighborhood? What effect do you think it has on the environment?
- Nursing homes
- Funeral homes
- Body piercing salons
- Tattoo shops
