USDA: Disinfecting Biohazardous Material Prior to Disposal Mobile App

Some biohazardous materials, such as sharps and unused vaccines, must be appropriately disinfected prior to disposal. The process in the USDA: Disinfecting Biohazardous Material Prior to Disposal mobile app is necessary to render an article safe for either reuse or disposal. The majority of biohazardous material is disinfected for the purposes of safe disposal and not reuse. Some biohazardous materials cannot achieve disinfection but only sanitization. GoCanvas allows account managers to create user dependent reference data.
