Item Evaluation

Other Hazards

Prior to surplussing, departments must remove or guard potential sharp objects such as glass and sharp edges (see SPPM 4.25).

Parts (e.g., doors; drawers; electrical cords; shelves) that could easily come loose or fall creating a hazard during lifting or transporting must be secured.


Departments are to prominently post a sign on each item, as needed, indicating any other hazards, e.g., lead-containing materials, that are not obvious and controlled or removed.

Item Evaluation

Prior to surplusing, the department must attach a completed Item Evaluation form listing the presence and location of other known or recognized hazardous components within an item.
