Food Safety

Foodborne illness is relatively common and not generally life threatening, but it can seriously compromise the health of young children or anyone with a suppressed or stressed immune system. Norovirus is the most common cause of foodborne illness; Salmonella is the most frequently reported cause of foodborne illness. Foodborne related allergic reactions can be very serious or life threatening. Physical contaminants such as (glass, wood), biological contaminates such as (virus, bacteria, parasite) and chemical contaminates such as (cleaning products, pesticides) also contribute to foodborne illness.

Shipping Hazardous Material

shipping hazmat

When hazardous materials are offered for transport by a commercial carrier like FedEx
or UPS, the shipment becomes regulated the U.S. Department of Transportation
(USDOT) and/or international agencies (IATA, ICAO). To comply with shipping
regulations, hazardous materials must be properly classified, packaged, documented
and handled by trained employees. Failure to meet these requirements may result in
delays, loss of research samples and potential regulatory fines.

REM can assist by either providing shipment services, or if necessary, training
personnel on the proper shipping procedures for regulated hazardous materials. REM
does not charge for shipment preparation or training services. However, the
Researcher is responsible for the cost of proper packaging materials, dry ice
(if applicable) and shipping costs.
