Protecting Edmonton from Hazardous Waste
Biohazard risks are not limited to labs and research facilities, they pose a greater threat to the city of Edmonton than you might think. GIC is dedicated to protecting both urban and natural environments from hazardous materials.
Needlestick and other “sharps” injuries are a prevalent source of infections in healthcare facilities, and these same needles and syringes can cause widespread contamination if they fall into the hands of vulnerable people. GIC ensures the safety of your staff, patients and the public with training and premium quality disposal supplies such as puncture-resistant sharps containers.
Our team also recognizes the importance of protecting Edmonton’s natural ecosystem from hazardous and polluting byproducts of medical waste. With areas of natural beauty such as Elk Island National Park and Miquelon Provincial Park, safe waste disposal is essential to prevent chemicals from seeping into groundwater, polluting our air or infecting wildlife. GIC’s waste disposal methods keep hazardous materials out of the environment, but also use sustainable responsible methods to treat this waste.
