Don’t let PPE waste become a new problem


  Posted by: Dental Design      10th September 2020

With increased demand for single-use PPE comes an increased amount of waste. Disposing of this waste responsibly is essential for ensuring the safety of others and the environment.

Initial Medical are experts in healthcare waste management and offer a full range products, services and support to help dental practices optimise their waste management.

We can help you create a dedicated PPE disposal area in your waiting room with our specifically designed 60L capacity bags and SilverSafe, pedal-operated clinical bins. They are colour-coded orange to meet all legal recommendations and best practice protocols for the safe, effective and ethical disposal of potentially infection waste. These are in addition to your normal clinical waste containers in the surgeries.

We also offer a secure wheelie bin for lockable and fully-compliant storage, which we will collect at suitable intervals and ensure its safe disposal.

Ensure the appropriate disposal of PPE waste throughout your practice to stop it from becoming a new problem.
