Communication of hazards is essential to ensure a safe work and learning environment. Laboratories that handle biological materials must communicate the hazards to students, staff, faculty, and visitors. The biohazardous label must be placed on the following:
- Entrance door
- Equipment that has come in contact with infectious agents. For example, biological safety cabinets, centrifuges, incubators, refrigerators, freezers, etc.
- Infectious waste disposal containers
- Sharps containers
Additional information can be found in the Laboratory Safety Manual.
