HAZMAT handles the biohazard waste management requirements of dozens of hospitals across the nation. Whether you need training for hospital staff in the proper waste management practices or you need a trusted partner to make complex waste problems a routine, give HAZMAT a call.
Sharps waste is any biohazardous material that can puncture skin and is contaminated with bodily fluids. According to OSHA estimates, 5.6 million healthcare workers handling medical equipment such as needles, syringes, and scalpels are at risk of exposure to blood borne pathogens from sharps-related injuries. Therefore, it is crucial for medical clinics, practices, surgery centers, and other businesses that generate contaminated needles and syringes to dispose of medical sharps waste correctly.
