Dispose of Hazardous Waste Safely
Healthcare and Medical waste must be managed in a strict and professional manner to avoid accidents and the spreading of diseases.
We offer a range of SHARPSGUARD® containers which prevent exposure to blood, and eliminate chances of contamination from sharps, needles, syringes as well as soft and liquid waste. Built tough, SHARPSGUARD® containers are resistant to fall damage and perforation and come equipped with a sanitising solution that eliminates all bacteria and odours.
Why is the Safe Disposal of Healthcare and Medical Waste Important?
Health Risks to Healthcare Workers
Improperly disposed of medical waste can pose a health risk to healthcare workers who handle it, potentially leading to infectious diseases and other serious health conditions.
Spread of Infectious Diseases
Medical waste may contain pathogens that can cause diseases such as HIV, hepatitis B and C, and COVID-19. If the waste is not disposed of properly, it can potentially spread to others.
If medical waste is not disposed of properly, it can potentially contaminate the environment, including soil, water bodies, and air.
Legal and Financial Risks
Improper disposal of medical waste can result in fines and legal liabilities, as well as damage to the reputation of your facility.
Public Health Risks
If medical waste is not disposed of properly, it can potentially harm the health of the general public, particularly if it is dumped in landfills or incinerated in a way that releases harmful pollutants into the air.
Did You Know?
The term “needlestick injury” is commonly used in the medical field to refer to injuries caused by accidental punctures from used needles and other sharp medical instruments.
Needlestick injuries can be dangerous because they can lead to the transmission of blood borne diseases such as hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and HIV.
Don’t let improper medical waste disposal pose a risk to your healthcare workers, the public, and the environment.
