Waste Creation

Cradle to grave hazardous waste management and tracking starts at the point of waste creation. To record waste in a department or location the user can use the HazMat Mobile App or can create waste using the Web Portal. Reporting is streamlined as waste codes that are created in the current zone are prioritized, the user records the waste profile, the storage type is also recorded and the user can specify a waste quantity also if known. A waste tracking label is printed with barcode or QR Code tracking information. The user can also record additional information such as Sample number, Order Number, Batch Number and Project Reference.

Waste Movements

Waste picked up from one place and moved to another area can be moved on the Web Portal or using the Mobile App by simply scanning the tracking barcode or QR Code on the Storage Unit (drum) and scanning the Waste Zone that it is being moved to. Multiple Storage Units can be transacted at once, all Storage Units in a batch or all the Storage Units in a Waste Zone can be transacted at once. Each Waste Movement is recorded with a full audit trail of all waste movement activity saved securely in the Cloud.

Audit Logging

On each transaction or activity there are a number of audits created. For each movement carried out, waste created, bulked up, packed down, waste shipped the user, time and date, and zone are recorded.
A separate audit trail is also created which records the above information together with additional auditing data. The audit log can be queried and reported against using the Reporting features with HazMat T&T.

Combining Waste

By default the system will not allow hazardous waste streams to be combined, unless the system has been specifically told which hazardous waste streams can be combined with other hazardous waste streams. Note that the system will not allow quantified (weighed waste) and un-quantified waste to be combined together. They both must be either quantified or unquantified. A storage unit can be split so that the result is a number of storage units, this facilitates decanting of waste.

Weighing Waste

To weigh the waste the user places the waste storage unit on a scales and scans the waste tracking barcode from the container. The Mobile App will retrieve the weight from the scales and update the system with the weight for the Storage Unit. Storage unit tare weights are managed to ensure the accuracy of the weights.
