The Disposal of Biological Waste session covers the regulatory and University requirements for dealing with wastes arising from biological, medical and veterinary facilities.
This course lasts one hour.
This course is suitable for those producing or dealing with wastes arising out of laboratories and similar facilities.
Anyone undertaking biological, medical or veterinary work in the University including those involved in research involving micro-organisms or materials that may contain them (such as blood and tissues etc) should attend this session.
It is also suitable for those who may no longer work in the laboratory but have managerial, supervisory or advisory responsibilities in these areas.
If required, sessions can be tailored to cover particular aspects or for particular staff groups.
At various times, to meet demand or where there is sufficient interest they can be provided to Schools upon request.
Relevant School/Area Safety Advisers and Biological Safety Advisers will be advised when sessions are available and asked to publicise details within their School/Area.
Alternatively University personnel interested in attending or arranging a session should contact Estates Waste Management for further details.
