The management of healthcare waste is an essential part of ensuring that health and social care activities do not pose a risk of infection. A wide variety of waste is generated from healthcare activities and employers have a statutory duty of care in relation to the management of that waste. They are also responsible for complying with health and safety and transport legislation.

At the end of this course, learners are required to complete an online assessment. On successful completion of the assessment (80% pass mark), learners may download a Waste Management certificate from their profile page. Our certificate can be used to provide evidence for compliance and audit purposes.
