Newark, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/16/2017 -- Medical professionals who frequently work with sharps (anything that can or has the ability once broken to puncture the skin) and other types of medical waste are encouraged to contact Choice MedWaste for sharps waste disposal in Lancaster County. By using proper containers for sharps and relying on professional medical waste removal, medical professionals can help reduce the risks associated with sharps, including lacerations and transmission of blood-borne illnesses.
Though injuries within the medical field are less common than those sustained in industries such as construction and mining, it's just as important for medical professionals to be aware of the best practices when it comes to on-the-job risks. One of the most common workplace injuries in the medical professional is cuts and accidental sticks from sharps or used needle tips and razors.
Sharps are considered a biohazard due to their potential for transmission of blood-borne illnesses, making it crucial that medical professionals rely only on companies like Choice MedWaste for disposal of sharps in Philadelphia, PA.
By immediately placing used sharps into the sharps container, avoiding placing sharps anywhere besides approved containers, and relying on sharps waste disposal companies for their removal, medical professionals can virtually remove the risk of sharps-related injuries from their workspace and can promote a healthy and safety-conscious environment for employees and patients alike.
Doctors, nurses, hospital staff and anyone else who regularly comes in contact with sharps are encouraged to contact Choice MedWaste by calling 302-262-8261 to learn more about preventing injuries when handling sharps or to schedule a pickup for medical waste.
