NIH Safetycasts In A Minute (NIH Quarantine Permit Service Office - "QPSO")


NIH's Office of Research Services (ORS), Division of Occupational Health and Safety (DOHS), has released another "Safetycast In A Minute" video. This episode reminds personnel that the Federal Government manages the transport of a wide variety of biological materials commonly used in research. The NIH Quarantine Permit Service Office (QPSO) is their resource to help navigate the complex requirements for the import, transfer or export of biological research materials.


Produced by DOHS, these videos highlight and provide brief occupational health and safety changes, tips, etc. More videos on other topics will follow in the coming months.


You can view Safetycasts In A Minute videos by visiting, or joining the "A HEALTHY SAFE NIH" LISTSERV at
