Jul 16, 2019 3:15pm ‐ Jul 16, 2019 4:15pm


Credits: None available.

Description

Healthcare facilities generate thousands of unique wastes and waste streams and leaders constantly struggle with their waste management program’s cost and compliance requirements. Often compliance issues are only uncovered during a government agency compliance inspection or a waste or chemical management incident. As no single department typically is responsible for the campus or system waste program compliance leaders should consider a campus-wide hazardous waste management approach that connects departments and makes safe and compliant program management a reality.

Learning Objectives:

  • Differentiate USEPA, DOT, and OSHA regulatory compliance requirements for health care facility waste streams and waste stream management programs.
  • Link safety and environmental compliance requirements with accreditation organization standards and requirements.
  • Recognize the five primary steps for implementing a health care hazardous waste management program.
  • Compare your health care system’s or facility’s environmental compliance readiness with case studies from expert panelists.

Speaker(s):

  • Darrell J. Oman, Technical Director, Senior Environmental Consultant, Braun Intertec Corporation
  • Kenneth Haber, MPA, FACHE, CHSP-FSM, Director, Network Environmental Health and Safety, Hackensack Meridian Health
  • Gary Griffiths, Facilities Regulatory and Safety Manager/Officer, University of Minnesota Health-Fairview
