Shipping Regulated Medical Waste training course is now online

The EH&S Shipping Regulated Medical Waste training course is now available online! This training is required initially and every three years for any personnel who perform the final packaging steps and offer shipments to the UW waste contractor. The online training includes hazard and security awareness, safety procedures, and function-specific shipping instructions. We hope that the online course makes it easier for personnel to complete the training requirement.
