Principles/Purpose of Hospital Hazards Management Planning

As a matter of general public health policy, waste minimization, recycling, and reuse are the preferred methods for reducing the volume of hazardous wastes and associated public health hazards. However, it is recognized that not all hazardous waste can be eliminated and that wastes need proper management and disposal. In some situations, such as the remediation of hazardous waste at Superfund sites, a review of all remedial technologies may indicate the use of mobile incinerators as the preferred method of permanently eliminating or reducing potential public health hazards posed by those wastes.  
Selection of incineration as the remedy of choice for some sites has led to an increased number of requests for health information related to incineration. When selected as a site remedy, incineration should be conducted in a manner that protects human health.
With careful attention to design and proper operation of the facility, significant quantities of hazardous waste can be reduced to smaller volumes of material that can be managed safely. With the vigilance of the regulatory community and the involved citizenry, the facility can operate as specified in the CERCLA operation and maintenance plan.
