The disposal of hazardous waste demands special attention, and the professionals at A & L Janitorial can rise to the occasion to meet those challenges. In addition to traditional janitorial work, our team is also trained and highly qualified to handle biohazards, which, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), includes:
- Blood, or blood-contaminated objects – such as needles, syringes, gauze, scalpels, canisters
- OPIM (other potentially infectious materials), including cerebrospinal fluid and other bodily fluids
- Human or animal organs and tissues
- Any other agent or pathogen that may threaten public health
Since this type of waste is routinely found in hospitals and clinics, we’re fully prepared to service your medical office. Whether it’s dry waste, like Petri dishes and paper towels, or liquid waste, like blood and blood components, we’ll step in to dispose of it for you. We strive to take some of the stress off your doctors, nurses and busy staff, so patients can receive the undivided attention they deserve.
From placing biohazardous waste into the appropriate containers, to wearing gloves and other personal protective equipment (PPE), we follow all of the Michigan State guidelines set forth by OSHA to ensure that our employees and your patients and staff can enjoy a safe environment. Everything will be disinfected, bagged and labeled properly step by step, and all sharps will be disposed of in designated containers.
When you hire A & L Janitorial Services, you can expect personalized service. This means that we’ll not only follow our own personal safety regulations and OSHA’s, but those of your facility as well. That way, we can make sure that our goals are always aligned with yours in every aspect of biohazard waste disposal.
