Following the recent deadly Ebola outbreak in Africa, it’s important that hazardous waste disposal methods in the UK are beyond reproach.
Although the risk of Ebola in the UK is low, if your establishment produces controlled waste, it’s important to understand that it’s your legal responsibility to ensure it’s managed correctly.
Throughout the UK, there are several regulatory bodies designed to control the management of healthcare waste, including:
But what do they actually do?
Quite simply, these bodies are responsible for inspecting and auditing a range of healthcare establishments – hospitals, dental practices, GP surgeries – to make sure that waste management procedures are being followed to the letter.
Get it wrong and you run the risk of being named and shamed on the inspecting bodies’ website, which is not only dishonourable, but it has the potential to alarm those that your healthcare establishment aims to protect.
Consequently, if you feel your waste management practices could do with a shake up or are unlikely to meet the appropriate legislation, we can help.
At Initial, we offer a free on-site survey to gauge how successful your current procedures are, identifying and assessing each stage, before making recommendations on areas that require attention.
Additionally, we can also provide clinical waste management training, which will help ensure you and your workforce are up to speed with individual responsibilities when it comes to dealing with waste.
If you’d like a bit more information about healthcare waste management training from Initial, please don’t hesitate to contact a member of the team today – we’d be delighted to help.
