Biomedical Waste Disposal & Removal
Our customers are usually looking for an easy, cost efficient option to manage their regulated biomedical waste. Companies such as hospitals, healthcare, physicians, dentists, research laboratories and more are the leading industries that create this form of waste.
The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) has biomedical waste regulations that are created with the intention to protect the workers in these industries from any risk associated with blood borne pathogens. Their Occupational Exposure to Blood borne Pathogens Standard also maintains specific rules pertaining to different types of wastes generated at healthcare facilities, which is termed “regulated waste”. Regulated waste contains blood and items contaminated by blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM). Any exposure to waste that contains human blood borne pathogens can, occasionally, result in disease.
Regulated medical waste includes:
- Liquid or semi-liquid blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM).
- Items contaminated with blood or OPIM, which could release substances in a liquid or semi-liquid state if compressed.
- Items that are covered in dried blood or OPIM and have the ability to release these materials during handling.
- Contaminated sharps.
- Pathological and microbiological wastes containing blood or OPIM.
Every state has a specific set of standards, regulations and requirements for biomedical waste.
