Prior to surplusing, departments must remove or guard potential sharp objects such as glass and sharp edges. See SPPM 4.25.
Parts (e.g., doors; drawers; electrical cords; shelves) that could easily come loose or fall creating a hazard during lifting or transporting must be secured.
Departments are to prominently post a sign on each item, as needed, indicating any other hazards, e.g., lead-containing materials, that are not obvious and controlled or removed.
Prior to surplusing, the department must attach a completed Item Evaluation form listing the presence and location of other known or recognized hazardous components within an item.
To obtain copies of the evaluation form, complete and/or print the PDF master on 20.77.4.
