Reduce Risk by Knowing Rules of Compliance


How long do you store medical waste? Best practice is that regulated medical waste should be removed at least every 30 days. Routine pickups are considered a best practice for managing RMW. Most facilities adhere to at least a monthly, if not a more frequent, schedule. As facilities like yours continue to manage unpredictable schedules and take added precautions due to the Covid-19 situation, TriHaz provides flexibility and dependability.


In addition to our waste service offerings, we provide you and your employees with compliance training and regulatory resources. It’s another way we reduce your risk and protect your employees. We help ensure compliance with federal and state regulations and guideline in the following areas: OSHA, DOT, EPA, HIPAA, and local regulations. Avoid possible fines and keep your employees safe with safety audits and training through our convenient, online training.
