This video showcases ways to minimize the healthcare industry's impact on the environment through the development of a facility-wide waste management plan. It is divided into three sections: the concept of an environmental footprint, the purpose of a waste management plan, and the components of a waste management plan. An individual section can be used as a training tool, or it can be viewed in its entirety. It provides a comprehensive picture of the types of waste generated at a healthcare facility and how to practically minimize and reduce these wastes.
