Facilities of Regulated Medical Waste


As per the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet; “In Kentucky, there are no specific regulations pertaining to medical waste and there is no one agency with jurisdiction over medical waste. There are, however, regulations that reference the characterization, treatment, handling, labeling, storage, transport and disposal of this type of waste. These state regulations overlap between environmental, public health, labor and transportation agencies. They are intended to protect personnel, the public and the environment from exposure, injury or contamination of potentially infectious wastes.

Regarding healthcare regulations, Kentucky has specific rules covering certain aspects of medical waste in hospital and nursing facility settings. For instance, regulations state that sharp waste containers must either be incinerated on or off-site or be rendered nonhazardous. The containers themselves must also either be incinerated or rendered nonhazardous by a technology that is approved by the Cabinet for Human Resources and the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Cabinet.

Additionally, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations are applicable in Kentucky, as it operates an approved occupational safety and health program. These OSHA rules impact various aspects of medical or infectious waste, including the management of sharps, requirements for containers that hold or store such waste, labeling of waste bags/containers, and employee training.
