OTHER HAZARDS

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.

Signage

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.

Item Evaluation

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.
