You’d be surprised how many employees/health care providers lack the required the knowledge and or training necessary to keep health a top priority. Here are some things you should keep in mind when it comes to medical waste removal.

Did you know that according to the Florida Department of Health: “There are approximately 38,000 facilities in Florida that generate biomedical waste.  These include hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, laboratories, funeral homes, dentists, veterinarians, physicians, pharmacies that provide flu shots, body piercing salons, tattoo shops, transporters, and storage and treatment facilities.”

The goal of your biomedical waste program should be to protect:
  • Health care workers
  • Environmental-service staff
  • Waste haulers
  • General public

From all risks associated with potentially infectious biomedical waste. Waste providers should be OSHA compliant and have trained professionals on staff to handle any situation.
