Clinical wastes are healthcare wastes that may prove hazardous to those that come into contact with them. There are stringent controls in place to ensure that clinical waste is managed safely and is recovered or disposed of without harming the environment or human health.
Local authorities, healthcare organisations and companies specialising in the removal and disposal of clinical waste companies have a legal requirement for their employees to hold this qualification. The Environment Agency is responsible for administering the hazardous waste regime.
Our Clinical Waste Course involves completing Core, Packages and Class 6 Toxic, harmful and infectious substances.
Our three day course is usually held Monday, Tuesday and Thursday although occasionally when our programme will allow, we can condense the course into two days. At the time of confirming your training requirements, we can advise the options available.
During the course we cover information regarding regulations and civil and criminal law, explanations of waste and mixed loading, types of packaging and packaging systems, loading and unloading information, drivers’ duties including security and vehicle equipment as well as training on personal protective equipment, emergency first aid, fire and general operating procedures.
Training concludes with a thorough exam briefing in preparation for the exam itself at the conclusion of training.
