Do physicians' offices need to have procedures/policies "on-site" regarding formalin if they put patient biopsy specimens into the small formalin containers?  What about formalin spill kits?  Thank you.

Yes, that would be the best. We even included formaldehyde safety training for the nurses/medical assistants. Contact dermatitis can develop even from small amounts.
