Lab Packaging Training
Meets the Standards of CSA | RedTail Certified
Lab packing is the proper method of packing small containers containing hazardous chemicals meant for disposal. The lab packing has to be executed by an expert trained and knowledgeable in regulation pertaining to safe transportation and disposal of hazardous chemicals at approved facilities.
Chemical waste generating organizations like warehouses, laboratories, hospitals, schools, medical facilities, industries, or operation uses chemicals like acids, bases, reagents, salts, solvents, thinners, paints, dyes, inks, cleaners, strippers and other compounds etc. These chemicals are contained in small containers (size of 20L pail or smaller). Some of these containers are expired; contaminated, partially used, leaking or just no longer needed and therefore needs to be disposed.
Careless handling the disposal including throwing in garbage, pouring in drain etc. leads to criminal penalties under the regulatory environmental laws.
