Sharps Management Services
There are a variety of sharp objects and tools that doctors and medical professionals use in the course of their work. Some of these objects will become contaminated either by a patient’s blood or other hazardous substance. In this event, these items will need to be discarded safely and appropriately. Fortunately, BWS provides contaminated sharps services in Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C.
Contaminated sharps are defined by OSHA as “any contaminated object that can penetrate the skin, including but not limited to, needles, scalpels, broken glass, broken capillary tubes, and exposed ends of dental wires.” Contaminated sharps should be discarded as soon as feasible in closable, puncture resistant, leak proof and labeled containers. BWS has the expertise to pick up and dispose of these containers.
Your company is responsible for your waste until it has been destroyed—even after it has left your facilities. This is why it is crucial you trust your waste disposal to a company with a proven track record. BWS has a combined 70 years of experience in contaminated sharps services and has the expertise to handle your waste appropriately.
