There are four general categories of bio hazardous wastes based on the physical form of the waste. Each form must be segregated, identified, decontaminated and disposed of in an appropriate manner for the form in order to minimise occupational exposure and environmental release risks.
Examples of Biohazard Waste
Human blood and blood products. This includes items contaminated with blood that will release blood in a liquid or semi-liquid form when compressed.
Pathological waste. Waste biopsy materials and any human tissues or body parts from autopsy, surgery, or other procedure.
Microbiological waste. Discarded live and attenuated viruses, discarded specimen cultures, and disposable culture dishes.
Sharps waste. Used needles or any sharp object including scalpels, glass slides, broken glass etc. that have been contaminated with potentially infectious materials.
To prevent infection, it is recommended to apply a universal precautions approach to all blood and body fluids. This means handling all biological materials as if they contain an infectious disease. If you are facing a blood spill, unattended death, or other trauma cleanup, know that you don’t have to face it alone.
