Waste Management Plan: Ensuring Compliance and Sustainability

The Waste Management Plan for Health Services (WMPS) is an extremely important document for establishments dealing with health-related waste, such as hospitals, clinics, laboratories, and other health institutions. It is governed by the National Solid Waste Policy (Law No. 12,305/2010) and the Resolution of the Collegiate Board of the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) No. 222/2018. This legislation establishes fundamental guidelines for the proper management of such waste, aiming to protect public health and preserve the environment.

The WMPS covers various aspects related to the management of health waste, from its generation to its final disposal. It must contain detailed information on waste segregation, proper packaging, collection, and transportation procedures, as well as treatment and final disposal stages. Additionally, the plan must include measures to prevent accidents and protect workers involved in handling such waste.

Companies must develop and implement the PGRSS according to established standards, ensuring legal compliance and contributing to the safety and sustainability of health waste management. By following PGRSS guidelines, healthcare institutions promote public health and significantly contribute to environmental preservation. Moreover, the adoption of responsible waste management practices can result in long-term economic, social, and environmental benefits.
