Importance of Compliance and Safety Training

| Compliance | January 31, 2019

One of the benefits of working with Medical Waste Services is that our expertise is in compliance and proper disposal. When you work with us, we make sure all of your medical waste is being disposed of properly and in FULL compliance with OSHA regulations. We document the entire process for proof of proper disposal, and we even have safety training and compliance tools for you or your team to work with.


Safety training is crucial for anyone who is going to be around or handling medical waste. The consequences are huge for anyone mishandling medical waste or disposing of it illegally. Without proper training, it is easy for employees to downplay the importance of proper disposal, while they unknowingly put people’s lives at risk.

We have an Online Safety Compliance Portal that you can use to train your staff with. It includes Bloodborne Pathogens (BBP), HIPAA, and HAZcom Training. The BBP training satisfies the annual OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens requirement on exposure control principles and practices. The HIPPA training satisfies the HHS privacy requirement.

These online courses are easy to follow and are in a video format, making it easy for you and your team to log in and review the latest training. They are less than an hour long, and you will get instant certifications with automatic online storage. It also includes an easy to use administrator page, as well as email reminders to make sure you and your team remain properly trained and up to date with certifications.

Our online tool also includes other safety information, such as safety audits to help you assess any issues in regards to OSHA violations and online safety plans for you to share with your team to make sure they are prepared in case of an emergency.


The issue of medical waste safety and disposal is near and dear to our hearts. Although we are there to help you properly dispose of your medical waste, we also want to be partners and educators for you and your team to remain safe and knowledgeable about the latest laws and regulations.

Our job is to help you protect our society by going above and beyond with the proper techniques, safety plans, and documentation to keep you and your team compliant and out of trouble!
