Medical Waste Regulations
We provide nothing less than the safest regulated medical waste disposal. Regulations have been in place since the 1980s when public concern for potential health hazards prompted our government to give the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) the responsibility to promote regulations on medical waste management.
Since then, individual states have taken on the responsibility of creating standards for regulated medical waste disposal. Every service we provide complies with both federal and state regulations, ensuring the safety and security of your employees and your organization.
Disposal Services for a Range of Medical Waste
Medical waste includes a variety of materials that can spread disease. Organizations must properly dispose of this type of waste to keep their communities and the environment safe from potentially harmful microorganisms.
There are many different types of medical waste, including medical sharps and needles, biohazardous waste, and pharmaceutical waste.
Different types of medical waste require distinct disposal processes. DMI Solutions offers a comprehensive selection of services to meet all of your medical waste management needs.
If not properly disposed of, discarded needles and other sharps can be hazardous to your employees, particularly your waste workers. Sharps injuries to these employees may result in the transmission of dangerous pathogens, such as hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, and human immunodeficiency virus.
DMI Solutions offers the distribution and transportation of sharps containers to remove these materials from your facility safely. It is essential that your facility has the required sharps containers to collect medical sharps and needles and that your employees receive training on how to use them.
Biohazardous waste is any waste that contains biological materials potentially harmful to other living things. Because biohazardous waste is considered to be a significant risk to the public and the environment, it must receive a different treatment before proper disposal. One service DMI Solutions offers to complete this sanitation process is autoclaving.
Pharmaceutical waste disposal includes hazardous and non-hazardous waste, trace chemotherapy, and other controlled substances. To properly dispose of these types of materials, DMI Solutions will provide you with the appropriate pharmaceutical waste containers and dispose of them. This service will ensure your facility complies with the standards set by OSHA to protect your employees.
Compliance Training to Keep Your Team Safe
Part of maintaining the safety of your facility is making sure your employees are aware of and working within all federal, state, and local regulations. Complying with all Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements will help protect your company from potential lawsuits, legal violations, and workplace injuries.
At DMI Solutions, we are committed to providing you with all of the tools necessary to keep your workplace safe and operating within the law. If you don’t know where to start, we offer a third-party software application that will help facilitate any compliance training you may need.
