Regulated Medical (Bio) Waste Shipping

DOT Hazardous Materials Training for Generators

In addition to following proper handling and storage requirements as dictated by their state, employers with facilities that generate regulated medical waste (a.k.a., biological, clinical, infectious, medical, biomedical, and etiologic wastes) are required to train certain employees in the applicable DOT hazardous materials transportation regulations (49 CFR Parts 100-185).

The specific employees subject to DOT training are those who sign shipping papers (medical waste tracking forms), affix labels or markings to the final packaging, seal containers for transport, or otherwise perform pre-transport functions covered by the hazardous materials regulations.

Triumvirate’s Regulated Medical (Bio) Waste Shipping training covers the DOT regulations affecting employers generating these wastes- employers like hospitals, health clinics, research labs, bio-pharma, and higher education institutions.

During this on-line 60-minute training, registrants will receive instruction in:

  • General awareness overview of the hazardous materials regulations, including administrative responsibilities- training, annual registration, security planning, security awareness, recordkeeping, and enforcement;
  • Perspective on state programs regulating internal storage and handling
  • Classification of infectious substances;
  • Categorization of pathogenic materials (Category A vs. Category B);
  • Proper shipping names and hazmat shipping description formatting;
  • General package survivability requirements;
  • Specific packaging specifications;
  • Special provisions;
  • Hazard labeling and markings; and
  • Completion/review of shipping papers
