Waste Creation

Cradle to grave waste tracking starts at the point of waste creation. To record waste in a department or location the user uses the HazMat T&T Smart App on a Smart Phone or Tablet or can create waste using the Web Portal. The user can select the waste code or can see just the waste codes that are created in the current zone, the waste storage type is recorded and the user can specify a waste quantity also if known. A waste tracking label is printed with barcode or RFID tracking information. The user can also record additional information such as Sample number, Order Number, Project Reference and Lot Number.

Waste Movements

Waste picked up from one place and moved to another area can be moved on the system using the Waste Management App by simply scanning the tracking barcode, RFID tag on the Storage Unit (drum) and scanning the Waste Zone that it is being moved to. Multiple drums can be transacted at once, or all the drums in a Waste Zone can be transacted at once. Each Waste Movement is recorded into HazMat T&T 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, 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 waste streams to be combined, unless the system has been specifically told what can be combined with what. 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 container on a scales and scans the waste tracking barcode from the container. The HazMat T&T Waste Management App then retrieves the weight from the scales and then updates the HazMat T&T database with the weight for the container.
