Very often the waste that laboratories dispose of is hazardous. Under health and safety regulations, this type of waste must be controlled and managed suitably and sufficiently.
Under the Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) regulations, all UK employers whose business produces hazardous waste must ensure that they have an efficient waste management system in place that disposes of hazardous waste safely and appropriately.
Hazardous waste can be extremely dangerous and has the potential to seriously harm workers, the public, animals and the environment. Therefore, is essential that your laboratory has an efficient waste disposal system in place. We can provide businesses across the UK with professional laboratory waste disposal services.
