|Description:||This photograph demonstrates the articles included when transporting a Dangerous Goods shipping box, which is used in the shipment of biohazardous materials. To the right, you can see what is known as a UN/4G/Class 6.2 box, used to contain the cylindrical container immediately adjacent to the box. In addition, note the diamond-shaped outlined on the box, which represents the location where the shipping label lying in the foreground, must be placed on the box.|
Note that the cautionary label displays the universal symbol for “Biohazardous Material”, and in writing, states that the contents includes an “Infectious Substance”, as well as a directive stating, “In Case of Damage or Leakage Immediately Notify Public Health Authority”, and provides a phone number to the Director of the Center for Disease Control, Atlanta, Georgia. Also note the number “6” on the label, which represents the classification of the contents, or "Class 6: Toxic and Infectious Substances", hence the use of this Class 6.2 box.
