  • Biomedical Waste Management

    Medical waste from field site clinics may present a specific challenge and could typically contain a wide range of waste.

    The safe and appropriate disposal of medical waste is critical to preventing or minimising the risk of transmitting microorganisms causing potential infections and other hazards.

    All personnel who handle biomedical waste shall receive training prior to handling and annually thereafter.

    All personnel who handle biomedical waste shall receive training prior to handling and annually thereafter. Training shall consist of information regarding hazards of exposure to biomedical waste, protective methods, decontamination, disposal and emergency procedures.

    Medical waste from field site clinics may present a specific challenge and could typically contain the following categories of waste: infectious waste; pathological waste; sharp objects (i.e., syringes, blades, broken glass, etc.); pharmaceutical waste; chemical waste; waste with high heavy metal content; and pressurised containers. 

    A strict and detailed waste disposal policy

    Waste Disposal Policy

    In order to keep pollution to a minimum at the workplace, while also providing a cost-effective solution, we cooperate with regional health-care waste treatment facilities to safely treat biomedical waste.
    We have a strict and detailed waste disposal policy, using this policy we create a customized medical waste management plan for every new project, this medical waste management plan indicates we contain, store, treat, and dispose of any medical waste generated.

    The purpose of or Biomedical Waste Plans is to provide guidance and describe requirements for

    Containment
    Labeling
    Storage
