Regulated Medical Waste (RMW)
Reliable and simple service solutions for Medical Waste Management
With safety at the forefront of its solutions, more healthcare facilities are choosing Daniels for customer-focused and cost-effective Regulated Medical Waste (RMW) services.
Given the potential infectious nature of regulated medical waste, stringent regulations govern its collection, transport and disposal. Regulated medical waste (also known as red bag waste, biohazardous waste, biomedical or infectious waste) is, according to US law, the responsibility of the generator from point of disposal, right through to final treatment. With over 30 years experience in healthcare, Daniels has the solutions, licensing and compliance expertise to protect the safety risk exposure and regulatory responsibilities of healthcare facilities in the total management of RMW waste.
We are not a red bag medical waste company
There are companies out there that boast the most durable red bags in the market. We’re not that company. There are some that even have “red bags” in the title of their business name. That’s not us either. Why? Because we believe in a world where medical waste containers are designed to an appropriate standard of safety and compliance that red bags are not required! Containers that are leakproof, puncture-proof and able to be permanently locked to avert security risks. It was the hard way to go about building a business (engineering the world’s safest medical waste containers with UN certified ratings is a bit more of an undertaking than manufacturing a better red bag!) but from a safety standpoint, it’s the right way.
We help you eliminate red bags
Once upon a time, medical waste in the United States was given the nickname “red bag waste”, but thankfully the myth that bags are an acceptable containment for infectious waste, is now disappearing. Quite simply, they are not sustainable, they are not safe (stories are replete of healthcare workers or cleaners getting stuck by a wrongly discarded sharp, or being exposed to spilled infectious substances), and they add an unnecessary cost to the healthcare supply chain.
