Sharps & Other Clinical Waste

Clinical & Healthcare Waste may sound like it’s reserved for medical institutions but there is overlap with a tattoo studio. Clinical waste covers a range of different types of waste, each with its own disposal method.

What comes under clinical waste?

There are numerous different types of waste that are classified as clinical waste. Needles are one such type. Needles are also referred to as hazardous waste. This is because they are potentially dangerous and need to be disposed of carefully. This is true for all of the different variations of tattoo needle:

  • Round needles
  • Flat needles
  • Stacked magnum
  • Weaved magnum

The tattoo needles pierce the skin around 3000 times a minute and the tiny indent it makes in the skin, just 1mm, is enough to get the ink under the skin. The risk of infection is still great if the needles are not sterilised. Disposing of them correctly is very important in order to prevent the spread of harmful germs and bacteria.

Also classified as clinical waste are:

  • Ink caps and leftover ink
  • Ointment and its containers
  • Protective gloves
  • Cotton swabs and wipes

Each requiring its own bin for disposal to ensure risk of infection is minimised.

How often does the service come to pick up the waste?

Our service is fully flexible. This allows you to operate your tattoo studio without any disruption for waste collection.

Commercial Waste

Commercial waste disposal is one of those things that can be time consuming for any business. Time sorting out waste means less time to run your business and that is a problem. Our commercial waste service will not just free up your time but also save you money.

What classifies as commercial Waste?

Commercial waste, or general waste, is the waste that cannot be recycled. This includes things such as polystyrene, polythene bags, and crisps and sweets packaging.

Is there a range of bins available?

Yes, there is a number of different bins available to suit the needs of every business. The range starts with a 240 litre capacity wheelie bin up to an 1100 litre lockable bin. Our service is also flexible servicing which will come to collect when it suits you.

Washroom Services

For larger studios, you may have washroom facilities for your customers which will need servicing to ensure that the facilities are in full working order. Each of our services offer high quality with reliable, flexible scheduling to suit your needs.

The washroom services we offer include:

  • Sanitary bins
  • Air Freshening
  • Hand Dryers
  • Soap Dispensers

What type of air freshener is included with the air freshening service?

The air fresheners we supply as part of our air freshening service are fully automatic and will emit a refreshing fragrance at various times throughout the day. This is not just to keep the room smelling fresh but also to be as environmentally friendly as possible.

PAT Testing

For a tattooist, maintaining your equipment (tattoo guns, autoclaves, ultrasound cleaners etc) and keeping it in working condition is important. This is where our PAT (Portable Appliance Testing) Service comes in.

Is PAT Testing a legal requirement?

All electrical equipment in a workplace has to be properly maintained in accordance to The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989. This states that ‘any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury or harm must be maintained and kept in a safe condition.’ PAT Testing complies fully with this piece of legislation.

How often does PAT Testing need to be conducted?

For timing, there is no fixed period. The recommended time between testing differs based on the type of business and the equipment used. For tattooists, the recommended time between having PAT Testing conducted is 2 years.

For more information on our services, give us a call or fill in the form.

Fire Extinguisher Testing

In the event of an emergency, you will want your safety equipment to be working, and that includes fire extinguishers.

What does Fire Extinguisher Testing look at?

Fire Extinguisher Testing looks as various aspects of the extinguisher and makes sure that they are in working order. The parts looked at include:

  • Pin
  • Seals
  • Gauges
  • Discharge hose

The extinguisher will also be recharged as part of the service. Another we will look at is the type of fire extinguisher that you have. This is because there are six different classes of fire extinguisher, which identifies what type of fire they can extinguish.

For information about our Fire Extinguish Testing Service, or any other service, give us a call or fill in the form on this page.
