The Safe Management of Healthcare Waste HTM 07-01

Part of the COVID-19 Course Bundle

60-minute online ECPD course for Dental Professionals

Dental practices produce a wide range of hazardous waste and non-hazardous waste and it’s very important for all members of the dental team to be trained in how all the different waste streams should be managed.

This is even more important during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This online course is relevant to the requirements for managing healthcare waste safely that are currently in place and will be updated as infection rates and death rates fall, and the UK revises its alert level down.

Suitable for the whole dental team.

The aim of this course is to provide you with the knowledge to safely manage the hazardous waste within your practice during the COVID-19 pandemic. This course is suitable for the clinical team.

You will learn:

  • The regulatory requirements for handling hazardous waste.
  • How to reduce the risk of infection when handling hazardous waste.
  • How to segregate and dispose of contaminated waste.
  • The correct way to store and transport hazardous waste.
