Management of Waste


Healthcare Risk waste is a component of risk registers in the majority of hospitals and Trusts- whether Acute or Community or Long Term Care or Primary Care, Risk waste is generated and has to be carefully managed to prevent risk to Healthcare workers and the Public.

Non Risk Waste needs to be separately stored and discarded so that the costs of managing risk waste can be kept to a minimum and so that any recyclable waste can be collected and disposed of according to National requirements Segregation of waste into Risk and Non Risk waste is the first part of the waste management process.


Using TS+ Auditing Technology, you can monitor compliance rates and staff knowledge of your policies with just a touch of the screen.


Transport and Storage Waste must then be separately stored, transported and disposed of meeting stringent National and International standards and guidelines. Internally, in healthcare facilities Healthcare Workers (HCW) transport of waste must be in specifically assigned risk waste or non risk waste containers these then have to be cleaned and decontaminated after use. Waste bags and bins must be kept clean and stored safely away from the public and away from Vermin.


Regulations

Under EU law, the generator of the waste is ultimately responsible for disposal of the waste. For this reason, Healthcare facilities must label and tag all waste and carefully monitor the waste disposal company to ensure all standards are met. Transport of healthcare waste is governed by ADR regulations ls under the remit of the transport of dangerous goods (ADR) regulations - Transport of dangerous goods by road - and these too need to be followed to ensure all healthcare settings meet best practice standards and guidelines.
