Description Laboratories regularly generate dangerous wastes. If improperly managed, dangerous wastes can pose threats to your health, safety, and the environment. Proper storage, designation, treatment, and disposal of chemical waste can prevent serious consequences of catastrophic events or accidents. This guide will help you prevent these violations and comply with the dangerous waste regulations.
