There are many important components to be considered when relocating your lab. Materials have to be properly packed, organized, stored, and transported according to regulations. Compliance is of the utmost importance. Here are just a couple of things to consider if you’re planning to relocate your lab.
Know the Rules
One of the most important things to be done as soon as you know you’re going to be relocating is to look up all of the rules and regulations associated with your relocation. EPA, OSHA, DOT, and various local agencies all have regulations that need to be followed. AEG Environmental knows all the rules and keeps track of any changes so you don’t have to!
Choose the Right Team
Because there are so many rules and regulations involved in relocating your lab, it is important that you choose the right team to help you with the move. Choosing to partner with a company that specializes in these types of moves ensures you will remain compliant with all relevant rules and regulations. AEG Environmental wants to be your preferred lab relocation partner. Take the guesswork out of moving your lab. Uncertainty can be dangerous, especially where hazardous materials are concerned.
Transporting hazardous materials carries its own set of rules. If you are moving across any city, county, or state lines, the transportation rules for each city, county, and state that you will be in will need to be followed. Materials will need to be safely and properly packed and labeled, and all necessary placards have to be clearly displayed on the outside of your transportation vehicle(s).
Your Old Lab
Lastly, after your move is complete, there should be a careful inspection of your old facility. Properly decontaminating your old facility is crucial to safety. Without proper decontamination of your old space, you can actually be held liable for damages. Partner with AEG Environmental and we will help you ensure that your old facility is as clean as it can get!
