SAFETYmatters - Placement of Biohazardous Waste Certification on Red Tubs

Biohazardous waste certification labels should be affixed to the side of the red tub, near the handle, and not over any other labels or markings. This is necessary to keep other labels and markings clear, to make the certification label more visible, and to aid in removal of the label during the tub cleaning procedure before being returned to service.

Additional information about biohazardous waste container preparation and disposal may be found on the EHS Biohazardous Waste web page.  Contact Seth Zickefoose at 319-335-4391 for more information.
