Justrite’s Biohazard Waste Cans meet OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1030 for the segregation of infectious waste. Use them to store contaminated laundry as well as other regulated waste; however, not for the storage of sharps. Sturdy steel cans feature leakproof construction with foot-operated, self-closing lid. Simple, foot pedal operation opens the biohazard waste can cover automatically to safely dispose of hazardous waste. Upon release of the pedal, the cover closes quickly to reduce the risk of contamination. Optional biohazard bag #05901 is held securely around the circumference of the can top.
For quiet environments, SoundGard™ models incorporate a muffling pad inside the lid to lessen disruptive closure noise. This reduces noise by approximately 200% over standard models. Optional label kit #25880 complies with California Health and Safety Code 118280 requiring warning labels to be visible from all sides of the biohazard waste can. Kit includes three labels and instructions.
