EHS Website Waste Disposal Procedure Webpage Chemical Waste Disposal Biosafety Program Website BIOLOGICAL HAZARDS Definitions • Hazardous biologics are those that will cause injury to humans, animals or the environment. • These are classified by Biosafety Level (BSL), which refers to the mode of transport and the level of infection. • BSL 1 is a normally occurring biological at environmental levels which may cause limited pathogenesis in humans, animals or plants. BSL 1 are allowable on campus. BSL 1 Definition BIOLOGICAL HAZARDS • BSL 2 are classified as having potential for pathogenesis but not airborne transport. Low potential for vector infection or death. UMES is working toward a BSL 2 lab. We cannot order BSL 2 biologics to date? • BSL 3 are classified as being pathogenic and airborne transport. High potential for vector infection. These biologics usually result in death. We cannot order BSL 3 or higher AREA BSL NOTIFICATION • Anyone entering as part of work or research must be trained concerning the hazards in their workplace. • All labs using biologics should have the level of the biologic posted on the door and limited access. • Yellow BIOSAFETY warning notices, for research with BSL 2 or higher, must be posted on the exterior door. HANDLING HAZARDOUS BIOLOGICS • Ordering of BSL materials must be approved by the EHS and the BSC. • BSL 1 require minimum protection of gloves and goggles. • BSL 2 require limited access and exposure and should not be used without prior instruction from EHS and the UMES Biosafety committee. • BSL 3 and higher are not allowed on campus at this time. BIOSAFETY DISINFECTION • Surfaces used with biologics must be disinfected by the method described in the MSDS. • At a minimum, this includes the use of a disinfecting compound or device, such as UV light. • Gloves, even unused, may not be worn outside the laboratory. HAZARDOUS BIOLOGICAL WASTE DISPOSAL • Biologics, including media, and cells, should be autoclaved before disposal. • Use a regular PE bag and autoclave tape to autoclave BSL 1 level biologics and trash. • Use a sealed box inside a regular PE bag and autoclave tape to autoclave BSL 1 spent needles and sharps. • The BIOSAFETY orange autoclave bags and/or sharps disposal boxes are reserved for use with BSL2 and higher. HAZARDOUS BIOLOGICAL WASTE DISPOSAL • Disposal procedure and the label must follow the instructions provided for Hazardous Biological Waste Disposal located on the EHS website: – www.umes.edu/EHS • Label all hazardous chemical waste bottles, with the appropriate EHS label prior to conducting the experiment. Biological Waste Disposal Procedure Charge for Waste Disposal • Your grant/department will be charged for all hazardous waste disposal. This may be included in the overhead of grants. • Unknown waste costs $4000/bottle. Please label materials and waste. • It is a violation to “dump” your waste in another area. It must disposed from the area from which it was generated. Penalties for Violation • You can be fined $1000 per day per violation by either UMES, any state authority or any federal authority. • If you knowingly violate any UMES mandates, you will be fined and face possible imprisonment. • If you witness any violations, you should report those to EHS immediately.

Laboratory Safety • In addition to learning experimental method, a purpose of this laboratory is to train students to develop good, safe work habits. • To establish these habits, these guidelines assume that the student is always exposed to the most hazardous situation, use with the strong, toxic, reactive corrosive, flammable chemicals. In reality, you probably will not be exposed to these in our labs. • We expect any student at doctoral level of training to have the ability to make an informed decision on how to protect themselves. Laboratory Safety • Another purpose of this class is to train students for professional employment. • Therefore, the students must follow the guidelines outlined by the Pharmacy Faculty Coordinator, their TA and the UMES guidelines. • We also strongly encourage the students not to request any exceptions from these rules.
