Regulated Medical Waste Management

Course Number: 498


The primary objective of medical waste management is to minimize the risk of disease transmission. To reduce the risk of infection, all oral healthcare facilities must have a RWM management program that meets jurisdictional requirements. The plan must include educational and training objectives related to the safe handling of RMW during segregation, packaging, storage, transportation, treatment, and disposal; and the establishment of a recordkeeping system.
