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 at left. 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. The cautionary label displays the universal symbol for Biohazardous Material, stating 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 Dir. 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.
