What Is Biohazardous Waste?
Biohazardous waste, also called infectious waste or biomedical waste, is defined as any kind of waste containing or contaminated by infectious or potentially infectious materials, like blood. This kind of waste could pose a threat to the health or safety of the public or environment and needs to be handled carefully. There are several categories of biohazardous waste that could be generated in the normal course of business. Each type needs to be stored, handled and disposed of properly to comply with all regulations and to keep your workers, visitors and patients safe.
There are four categories of waste, including:
- Solid waste: The items used to treat patients, not including sharps. This category includes anything from gloves and towels to pipettes and laundry contaminated with bodily fluids.
- Liquid waste: Blood and other bodily fluids.
- Sharps waste: Needles, scalpels and anything that could puncture the skin. Glass slides, broken ampules and tubes also fall into this category.
- Pathological waste Body parts, including human organs and tissues. Teeth are not included.
