What Are the Different Kinds of Regulated Waste?

Six kinds of medical waste are usually regulated at the state level and need to be handled, managed, and disposed of properly based on OSHA regulations, State mandates, and the personal safety of your employees, patients, and customers.

Pathological Waste

Pathological waste includes all human anatomical wastes, tissues, organs, or body parts that are intended to be disposed of, regardless of what medical procedure was performed.

Human Blood and Blood Products

This category includes any type of blood disposal (including serum, plasma, and other components) and human body fluids, including any bodily fluids that are visually contaminated with blood or fluids where it might be difficult or impossible to differentiate between body fluids and blood.

Cultures and Stocks of Infectious Agents

Also known as microbiological waste, this type of waste generally originates from clinical or research laboratory procedures involving communicable infectious agents. It could include specimens from medical and pathology laboratories, culture dishes, devices used to transfer, inoculate, and mix, or discarded live and attenuated vaccines.

Contaminated Sharps

Sharps waste includes any item that can induce subdermal inoculation of infectious agents that can easily penetrate the skin, puncture waste bags, and cardboard boxes that were used in medical, research, or industrial laboratories on animals or humans.

Isolation Waste

Isolation wastes are any type of waste that has potentially been contaminated with a highly communicable disease. It’s usually generated by hospitalized patients or animals isolated to protect others from communicable diseases.

Contaminated Animal Carcasses, Body Parts and Bedding

From animals intentionally exposed to pathogens in research, biological production, or in vivo pharmaceutical testing.
