Transport of Biohazard Material on Campus

Secondary containers fulfilling below requirements must be used

  • leak-proof 
  • Impact and disinfection resistant

Example: clip-on rigid boxes, clip-on tubs, or screw capped impact resistant jars

Examples of good transports for biohazardous material, such as clip-on rigid boxes, clip-on tubs etc.

Do not use leak or impact sensitive holders as secondary containers

Examples of bad transports for biohazardous material, such as ziploc bags, test tubes, petri dishes etc.

Ziploc bags or test tube racks or petri dishes contained in open trays or directly on cart do not serve as a rigid outer layer for transport on campus.

If your biohazards access public roads then you need to complete Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) training.
