The correct onsite segregation of clinical waste is vital to ensure compliance with government regulations. Initial Medical follow The Department of Health’s Safe Management of Healthcare Waste Memorandum, which outlines a best practice waste segregation colour coding scheme for producers of hazardous and non-hazardous waste.
To ensure businesses are fully aware of their waste management requirements and how best to maintain waste streams, we provide a free set of colour coding posters to make this information digestible and accessible. With a different poster provided for each waste stream, you will also have the choice of two different styles; either a standard colour coded poster or a fun character style, making it even easier for staff to remember how different types of waste are classified.
Incorrectly managed clinical waste can pose risks to staff and patients, as well as failing to comply with waste disposal legislation. At Initial Medical, our specialist waste disposal service provides you with expert guidance from our trusted technicians and consultants, helping you to stay compliant. Our clinical waste segregation posters are an additional resource to keep your business informed.
