OSHA Compliance Solutions

Any facility routinely producing hazardous waste will attest to the importance of designing and maintaining a management plan that is not only effective, but in full compliance with all state and federal regulations. Failing to do so can lead to dangerous health consequences for workers and others, not to mention exposure to costly sanctions and perhaps even litigation. Citiwaste offers facilities throughout New York and New Jersey with comprehensive OSHA compliance training tools to ensure efficient waste handling and risk mitigation.

OSHA bloodborne pathogens standard

A critical starting point for any waste management program is for all employees and operators of covered facilities to thoroughly familiarize themselves with the standards promulgated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to protect against the dangers of blood borne pathogens and other types of regulated waste. These guidelines include numerous facets, among them being the requirement that covered facilities develop a formal Exposure Control Plan.

To that end, it is vital for employees and operators of facilities handling and producing hazardous medical waste to be trained in topics such as:

  • How must sharps containers be handled?
  • Where should containers be placed?
  • What types of containers are best?
  • What processes should be used to dispose of regulated waste?
  • When must labels be used, and what colors are required?
  • Can labels ever be substituted?
  • Are the Department of Transportation's waste and specimen labels accepted by OSHA?

All of these fundamental questions are answered in the expansive OSHA training opportunities available through Citiwaste. Considering the fact that all facility employees, whether full-time, part-time or temporary, must receive OSHA compliance training, it is incumbent upon operators to secure the very best training vehicles available for a potentially substantial pool of people each year.

That is why Citiwaste offers extensive learning resources that include:

  • New Employee OSHA Orientation services for those with prior training, but who are new to your facility
