DOT Regulated Medical WasteThis course is required for individuals who are responsible for certifying regulated medical waste manifests at USF. The training includes information related to the US Department of Transportation Hazardous Materials Regulations.
Hazardous Waste Pharmaceutical DisposalFormerly known as Universal Pharmaceutical Waste training, this course covers the State and Federal rules for the management of waste pharmaceuticals, including waste determinations, container management, labeling, storage limits, and the disposal process.
EH&S conducts laboratory safety training in a modular format that includes the following topics: chemical hygiene, hazardous waste, chemical spill response, laboratory ventilation, and biosafety. Because virtually every laboratory worker utilizes chemicals, the chemical hygiene, hazardous waste, chemical spill response, and laboratory ventilation topics are required for all laboratory workers. The biosafety training is designed for laboratory workers who work with biological agents.
EH&S offers a general biosafety training class as part of laboratory safety training. The biosafety training lasts approximately two hours and covers regulatory requirements, the University Biosafety Program, work with recombinant and synthetic nucleic acid molecules, general biosafety work procedures, and biohazardous waste disposal. University laboratory workers who work with biological agents are expected to take this online course. Workers must receive training prior to beginning laboratory work with biological agents. Currently, each individual is required to take the online general biosafety training once; however, completion of an online refresher course is required annually. Additionally, ongoing training is required as part of laboratory specific training requirements (see section below).
Biohazardous agents are infectious microorganisms, or their toxins, which cause or may cause human disease. Although the OSHA "Occupational Exposures to Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratories" (referred to as the "Laboratory Standard") does not apply to biological agents, the policy on this campus is to apply the same basic requirements - responsibilities, training, laboratory safety plan, reporting of accidents/exposures, etc. - to biological agents. This manual is intended to serve as a supplement to the UNC Laboratory Safety Manual, specifically addressing biological safety matters. In addition, laboratories that work with biological agents also use chemicals that are subject to the Laboratory Standard. Finally, the knowledge of the location and hazards of the biological agents used on campus are needed for emergency response planning purposes. 041b061a72
