Chapter 2 - Applicability

    Many departments and facilities at Idaho State University work with biological agents and therefore produce infectious or potentially infectious waste.  Academic units include: Biology, Nursing, Pharmacy, Idaho Dental Education Program, and Dental Hygiene.  Other entities include: Student Health Center, Family Medicine, Technical Safety Office, and Transportation Services.  Also, bodily fluids (blood) resulting from accidents shall be considered infectious waste, regardless of where the accident occurs on campus.  Students in academic laboratories should be aware of infectious waste policy and procedures to prevent the mishandling and spread of infectious waste.
