Top frequently asked questions:
- How do I dispose of broken glass?
If the broken glass IS contaminated with biologicals then it must be disposed of as a sharp in a sharps container. If the broken glass is NOT contaminated with biologicals then place the glass in a heavy cardboard box, tape it securely and label the outside of the box "broken glass". Place the box for regular trash pickup via Environmental Services.
- Who picks up sharps containers?

- How often should I take the Bloodborne Pathogens class?
The initial Bloodborne Pathogens training class is to be taken upon employment and then an annual update must be taken. The up-date is all that is necessary after the initial class has been taken and successfully passed.
