Finding a Lab Logistics Provider You Can Trust
Whether you are delivering medical records or dropping off a blood sample, it is critical that you can trust your lab logistics provider to be safe and efficient. Your courier must not only use advanced equipment and technology to make sure your deliveries get to their destination on time, its employees must also be certified and thoroughly trained. The professionals with Jaguar Logistics want you to be as informed as possible when making this extremely important decision.
Certifications Are Key
It is critical that your lab logistics courier is compliant with all Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, regulations. This extensive program includes not just general safety training, but also training in exposure control plans and blood-borne pathogens. In addition, the Department of Health and Human Services checks medical service organizations regularly to make sure they are in compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPPA This act ensures national standards are followed regarding the use and transfer of medical data.
Use of Safe, Modern Transport Containers
Make sure the lab logistics provider you choose uses climate-controlled, secure containers to carry sensitive pharmaceuticals and other materials. The containers need to have durable casing so that all contents are kept safe and at the necessary temperature. That way, you can be assured your materials will reach their destination in perfect condition.
Proper Sanitation Practices
Finally, any lab logistics courier you are choosing must follow safe and secure transport sanitation practices. Their vehicles must contain a wide range of handling, absorption and sanitation supplies, including spill kits containing antimicrobial wipes, rubber gloves and more. Each courier needs to have a uniform and wear an identification badge that is clearly displayed.
