The Best Practices for Safely Handling Biohazard Waste

The Best Practices for Safely Handling Biohazard Waste. Biohazardous waste needs to be disposed of and treated in a specific way. The handling, storage, and disposal of biohazardous waste is governed by local, state, and federal law. However, there are many ways you can make sure your biohazardous waste is handled safely. Some common mistakes people make when handling biohazardous waste include disposing of it in regular trash containers, storing it in unmarked containers, and not wearing protective gear like gloves and masks.

Biohazard waste is any material that has been contaminated by blood, saliva, other bodily fluids, secretions, or excretions from humans and animals. There are many ways biohazard waste can be generated. Some of the most common sources include hospitals/clinics, dental offices, veterinary clinics, tattoo parlors and more.

Regardless of where your biohazard waste comes from, it needs to be handled with care and disposed of properly so it does not injure the environment or people who may come in contact with it.
