Infectious Waste Safety Programs

Infectious Waste Safety Programs

Infectious waste requires special treatment and handling because it is capable of transmitting disease. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that employers develop plans and procedures for handling infectious waste.
