Recycling & Waste Management Blitz

The Ministry of Labour’s inspection blitzes on sector-specific hazards are designed to raise awareness and increase compliance with health and safety legislation among Ontario workplaces. To view the blitz schedule, click here.

 

In many healthcare settings, the handling of biomedical waste (i.e. waste produced from the administering of drugs and medications) is an ongoing concern due to potential contamination by infectious agents. Workers may be exposed to hazards at all stages in the preparation, administration and waste management of hazardous drugs.
