The correct and proper management of clinical waste is vital for any organisation that produces hazardous waste, due to the strict legislation in place to prevent harm being caused to the environment and human health.
Clinical waste is defined in the Controlled Waste Regulations 1992. It refers to any waste that consists wholly or partly of:
Clinical waste also refers to any other waste arising from medical, nursing, dental, veterinary, pharmaceutical or similar practice, investigation, treatment, teaching or research.
An integral part of clinical waste legislation is to ensure that the correct segregation and storage of waste is completed. This ensures that it is managed and disposed of safely, reducing the potential risk to both humans and the environment.
We offer a detailed clinical waste pre-acceptance audit that identifies and categorises the types of waste and quantity that you are producing. From this audit we are able to provide expert advice and recommendations on the types and sizes of clinical waste bins and disposal services that your organisation requires to ensure compliance.
Our helpful guide to the correct waste colour coding shows the various disposal methods depending on the type of waste
