The relocation of hazardous materials and substances presents risks and challenges in every laboratory relocation. At aport, we have years of experience and expertise in hazardous materials management, to ensure that substances are transported safely all times with minimum exposure to risk.
In particular aport has specific in-depth knowledge in the handling of infectious substances relating to humans and animals and in the handling and carriage of radioactive materials along with standard laboratory chemicals and other hazardous substances.
You can rely on aport to safely transport even the most dangerous of substances and samples. We have recent experience in successfully relocating anthrax and ebola, as an example.
The incorrect handling of hazardous substances can not only have safety risks to staff and members of the public, but health and safety breaches could result in hefty fines for your company.
Aport employs full time dangerous goods safety advisors (DGSAs) who will be involved from an early stage on all our projects which necessitate the handling or movement of hazardous materials. Our DGSAs are fully qualified to advise and provide guidance as to the handling techniques, packaging and safety precautions necessary to move hazardous substances in the safest way possible, adhering to all necessary global regulations and guidelines.
We will be able to provide the correct packaging materials and specialist equipment required to relocate any hazardous substances. The aport team will also liaise with the relevant authorities, if necessary, regarding the transportation of dangerous materials by road, rail, sea or air. This requires specialist care and knowledge.
