Safety aspects of handling fentanyl exhibits

Laboratory policies should be put into place to ensure safe work environments. In addition, laboratories should have the facility and protocols in place to perform the drug testing service(s) offered. The handling of biological materials exposes personnel to infection hazards from, among others, hepatitis and HIV; all personnel should therefore take the necessary precautions and adhere to safety procedures such as wearing gloves and other protective clothing. See Section VI. Laboratory accommodation, environment and safety in the Recommended Guidelines for Quality Assurance and Good Laboratory Practices, for additional recommendations.
