Biohazard Waste Expertise You Can Trust
Disposal of regulated medical waste has been our business since 1989. The regulations associated with various biohazards and their disposal are intricate, vary by state and local requirements, and are regulated by several federal government agencies including:
- US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
- US Department of Transportation (DOT)
- US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
- US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
With a diverse range of service offerings, Stericycle can expertly accommodate your specialty waste disposal needs, too.
Biohazard Waste Management Solutions That Meet Your Compliance Needs
Stericycle maintains an extensive team of environmental, safety, and regulatory specialists who keep up-to-date with and decipher ever-changing federal, state, and local requirements. This continued focus and commitment to regulatory compliance ensures that your biohazards and other regulated wastes are handled with the appropriate attention to detail, thereby minimizing your business risk.
Protect Yourself and Your Employees From the Risks of Infectious Waste
We know that many of our customers don’t have the internal resources to train employees or easily maintain all the legally required recordkeeping. That’s why we offer associated compliance training services that can aid your facility in adhering to biohazard waste regulations.
For most organizations, OSHA has strict guidelines intended to protect you and your employees. For example, annual bloodborne pathogens training is legally required for every employee who may come in contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials. OSHA also requires that employers maintain and update specific safety plans, such as a bloodborne pathogens exposure control plan and written hazard communication program. Stericycle offers both on-site and online tools to help you navigate these requirements, be compliant, and avoid costly citations and penalties.
