Daniels has a strong history of expertise and association with the collection, treatment and disposal of medical waste.
Daniels provides medical waste services in some of the countries in which it operates, notably Canada and the United States, and its understanding of issues relating to this waste stream are an important factor in the ongoing development of the handling and processing components of the Sharpsmart reusable sharps management system.
In Australia, Daniels has a strong and successful association with SteriHealth Ltd, Australia's leading provider of medical waste services.
SteriHealth is the exclusive provider of the Daniels Sharpsmart system in Australia and it operates Washsmart processing facilities to service hospitals and other healthcare customers in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia.
