Legislation controlling the safe handling, collection and disposal of healthcare waste can often be confusing and over time more regulations and legislations are being introduced.
Legislation has been introduced for very good reasons and we ensure that all of our staff are fully trained and aware of current controls and procedures. Certain waste such as soiled sanitary dressings, nappies and needles need to be disposed of in the correct manner. Employers have a legal duty to ensure that all hazardous waste is disposed of following the correct Duty of Care procedures.
To provide you with peace of mind, all of our customers receive a “Duty Of Care” certificate to certify that your waste is being handled and disposed of in the correct manner. This document should be kept for two years. These certificates are a legal requirement and are provided free of charge by Hygienic Concepts.
