LABELS AND SIGNS

For our employees, the most obvious warning of possible exposure to bloodborne pathogens are biohazard labels.  Because of this, we have implemented a comprehensive biohazard warning labeling program in our facility using red color-coded containers. The Director of Environmental Health and Radiation Safety is responsible for setting up and maintaining this program at our facility.

The following items in our facility are labeled appropriately:

We recognize that biohazard signs must be posted at entrances to HIV and HBV research laboratories and production facilities.  However, the laboratories at our facility perform only clinical and research work, which is not covered by these special signage requirements.
