Given the potential infectious nature of medical and healthcare waste, stringent regulations govern its collection, transport and disposal. Biomedical waste (also known as biohazard, biohazardous, medical or infectious waste) is, according to Canadian law, the responsibility of the generator from point of disposal, right through to final treatment. With over 30+ years experience in healthcare, Daniels has the solutions, licensing and compliance expertise to protect the safety risk exposure and regulatory responsibilities of healthcare facilities in the total management of all healthcare waste streams.
What is biohazard waste?
Anatomical solids and liquids waste from humans and animals
Microbiological wastes such as waste serums and vaccines
Non-anatomical wastes such as equipment
Waste sharp items such as hypodermic syringe needles, called “sharps”
Chemical and pharmaceutical wastes
We're not going to give you a yellow biohazardous bag and a box
There are companies out there that boast the most durable yellow bags or plastic tubs in the market. We’re not that company. Why? Because we believe in a world where biomedical waste containers are designed to an appropriate standard of safety and compliance that bags are not required! Containers that are leakproof, puncture-proof and able to be permanently locked to avert security risks. It was the hard way to go about building a business (engineering the world’s safest medical and healthcare waste containers with UN certified ratings is a bit more of an undertaking than manufacturing a more rigid bag!) but from a safety standpoint, it’s the right way.
We help you eliminate biohazardous waste bags
The myth that bags are an acceptable containment for infectious waste, is quickly disappearing with infection control asserting a stronger voice in purchasing and healthcare service decision-making. Quite simply, plastic bags and single-use containers are not sustainable, they are not safe (stories are replete of healthcare workers or cleaners getting stuck by a wrongly discarded sharp, or being exposed to spilled infectious substances), and they add an unnecessary cost to the healthcare supply chain.
