Regulated medical waste is also referred to as bio-hazardous waste, infectious waste or sharps needle waste. Proper handling and disposal is critical to avoid any regulatory fines and to prevent the spreading of diseases. Local, state and federal regulations all must be obeyed when red bag waste, sharps needles, body fluids and other types of medical waste are being discarded. It is extremely important to work with a professional medical waste disposal company to ensure full OSHA compliance.
Medical waste disposal is broadly classified as any type of item that makes contact with body fluids. More specifically, it is any type of solid waste that is generated during diagnosis, treatment or immunization. Paper towels, gloves, wipes, needles, syringes without needles and bandages with any amount of blood or fluid are just some of the examples of biohazardous or medical waste. Due to the possibility of medical waste spreading viruses or diseases, laws governing the regulation of medical waste are very strict.
