Attention Healthcare Facility Managers
Or Any FM who Needs Compliance Training:
Here is a Resource
The New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) Hazardous Waste Bureau conducts hazardous waste inspections at hospitals, pharmacies, as well as other types of facilities. They offer their services to conduct free training concerning managing hazardous waste at hospitals and pharmacies. Having recently conducted inspections at several hospitals, they have found the majority of them to be out of compliance. Their aim to provide this training to large audiences spreads the information more quickly than individually inspecting each hospital/pharmacy.
But beyond healthcare, NMED believes they might be able to target some training for other diverse and various types of facilities. Compliance assistance is a key component in their program and keeping facilities in compliance makes the job a lot easier.
