Shipping Medical Waste – Online Training

Online On-Demand Training

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). Triumvirate’s Shipping Medical Waste Training covers the DOT regulations affecting employers generating these wastes – employers like hospitals, health clinics, research labs, biopharma companies, and higher education institutions.
