The correct onsite segregation of clinical waste for disposal is vital to ensure compliance with government regulations. Initial Medical follow The Department of Health’s HTM 07-01 Safe Management of Healthcare Waste Memorandum. This outlines the best practice waste segregation colour coding scheme for producers of hazardous and non-hazardous waste.
We provide a free set of colour coding posters, lower down on this page, to make this information digestible and accessible in your business. This will ensure your business is fully aware of their waste management types and how best to maintain waste for disposal.
Not only is there a different poster provided for each waste stream, but you also have the choice of two different styles; either a standard colour coded poster or a fun character style, making it even easier for staff to remember how different types of waste are classified.
Incorrectly managed clinical waste can pose risks to staff and patients, as well as failing to comply with waste disposal legislation. Giving staff the knowledge and providing the correct waste bin or waste container will significantly reduce the chances of contaminating waste streams.
At Initial Medical, our specialist waste disposal service provides you with expert guidance from our trusted technicians and consultants, helping you to stay compliant. Our clinical waste segregation posters are an additional resource to keep your business informed.
