ACE WASTE PTY LTD CLINICAL, GENERAL AND RECYCLING WASTE AUDITING SERVICES
Waste audits are a key quality improvement process for identifying opportunities to change practice and improve the quality of Waste Management outcomes through a systematic review and evaluation of Waste Management and Segregation practices.
Audits are conducted by qualified Ace Waste personnel and compare actual practice against gathered documented and photographic evidence based on required compliance standards of (DEHP) Department of Environmental and Heritage Protection Regulations and Legislative requirements, Health & Safety Act & Regulations, (WMAA) Waste Management Association of Australia Industry Code of Practice for the Management of Clinical & Related Waste (6th edition 2010) and Ace Waste Pty Ltd Auditing Policies and Procedures.
Provided required protocol can be achieved, Auditing services can be conducted either on sight at the facility or at one of Ace Waste’s Treatment Facilities.
Where an audit has demonstrated serious concerns regarding segregation practice, confidentiality and data protection is guaranteed and details will be immediately conveyed to the facility Waste Manager as a hazard requiring urgent action.
Clinical & Related waste has the potential to cause injury, infection, environmental harm or medical, veterinary, pharmaceutical and similar activities providing potential to cause disease but when segregated and disposed of appropriately there is virtually no Health and Environmental risk or a prosecutable offence arising from a breach of Legislation.
