We provide complete solution for health care facilities to manage medical waste with proper and scientific approach as per the National Health Care Waste Management Guidelines and WHO guidelines.
The inability of health care facilities to manage the health care wastes is a telling fact and pointing towards the need of the proper and scientific approach towards the management of the bio-hazardous wastes. So, here at waste service, we provide you with a complete solution for biomedical waste as per the WHO guideline.
About 80% of biomedical waste is general waste, which does not require special treatment, if it is not contaminated with other infectious waste. Thus, segregation is the most important step in bio-medical waste management that reduces the risk as well as the cost of handling and disposal. As a result, we encourage our clients to segregate their waste at the source by providing them with five color coded containers for different category of waste: Red for anatomical, soiled waste and pharmaceutical waste. Yellow for solid waste apart from sharps and glasses, Blue for glass products, green for biodegradable general waste and black for non-biodegradable general waste. There will be a separate metallic container for sharps. Unless and until the waste is segregated, we don’t accept it.
Wastes should not be allowed to accumulate at the point of production. The segregated waste at the source are collected when the containers are about three-quarters full and transported to temporary storage site. These containers are labelled with the name of its source in order to trace the waste back to its source if required. The temporary storage of waste are done in separate color-coded containers, provided by waste service. Likewise, the general waste are temporarily stored but in a separate room. The site, duration and the conditions for temporary storage are as per the WHO recommendations.The person responsible for collection of healthcare wastes carry a register with him to maintain the records such as name of the healthcare unit, the type and quantity of waste received, signature of the authorized person from the healthcare unit side, day and time of collection etc.
