It is critical for every individual involved with waste management, whether with its handling, disposal or more commonly with its transportation, to acquire the relevant safe handling knowledge and skills.
The first step in effective waste management is to understand the difference between what is hazardous and what is not. Many types of hazardous material require special handling, and the correct handling methods must be used for the material being disposed.
Indeed, hazardous waste, if not contained correctly can lead to fires, explosions, or the release of toxic fumes due to interaction with the container. It is crucial to ensure the hazardous material is ready for transport in order to reduce risks, last minute efforts and added expenses.
