Medical Waste Disposal Responsibilities

Medical Waste Disposal Responsibilities. Medical waste disposal is a major responsibility for any facility that generates it. Medical waste is regulated by many different agencies including the EPA, OSHA, and departments of health.

It’s important to understand out of the many different agencies, they may regulate medical waste at different levels. Local government like health departments, state governments like your states EPA offices, and federal governments like OSHA could all have regulations you must follow in your city.

Not following any of these regulations could result in hefty fines, knowing what is required in your city and how to properly handle, store, and dispose of your medical waste correctly is the first step in a successful medical waste management program.

Staying on top of all the regulations and any regulatory changes can be a daunting task, you could find yourself unknowingly out of compliance.
