ABSTRACT:
The generation of solid waste is enormous in the present Indian Scenario. Though there are various developmental activities carried out to enhance the economy of India, the environmental pollution and accumulation of hazardous health care waste has had a major impact on the society. In the recent times, the handling and management of health care waste is an emerging concern among the sources responsible for generating hazardous waste. Improper management of these wastes may, in turn, result in occupational health risks and infectious surroundings. An initiative has been taken to analyse the sources, classification, legislative measures, handling and disposal technologies available for health care waste in India. This paper aims to promote awareness on hospital waste management among health care providers and emphasize their commitment towards a sustainable environment. It emphasises on the good practices to be followed by the hospital staff at the source.
