If pharmaceutical waste is not stored and disposed of correctly, it can prove to be extremely harmful to the environment and to human and animal health.
Pharmaceutical waste management
As an employer, you have a legal duty to ensure that any pharmaceutical waste your business produces is managed, stored and disposed of in a safe and suitable manner. The ‘duty of care’ that you are assigned as an employer means that you could face legal action, should you fail to follow the regulations on managing pharmaceutical waste.
We can provide your organisation with professional waste disposal units, to ensure that your pharmaceutical waste is safely collected and disposed of.
