Transportation of Research Chemicals
When transporting research chemicals, it is important to ensure that they are transported safely. According to Johns Hopkins Lab Safety, tips for safe transport include carrying bottles or jars in trays or bottle carriers instead of by hand—they are less likely to become broken, and the tray/carrier provides secondary containment. If using trays, push the tray on a laboratory cart instead of carrying it. Carts used to transport chemicals should have at least a 2-inch lip to provide adequate containment1.
Chemicals can only be transported for the purposes of conducting research, field investigations, educational purposes and other official university business. All materials must be transported and stored in a secondary container to prevent breakage
