Primer on Safe & Efficient Handling of Dry Ice

Revision Date

As critical infrastructure owner/operators participate as a key cold chain connection in America’s transportation and distribution of coronavirus vaccines, this product will help owners/operators ensure they are safely and efficiently handling dry ice, and subsequently while there is limited supply, ensure the safety and integrity of facilities that receive, house, and distribute the vaccines. Supply chain disruptions, order integrity issues, and monitoring integrity can all have a negative impact on the ability for the U.S. to efficiently and effectively distribute critical COVID-19 vaccines.

Dry ice is a critical component in the ultra-cold and cold chain vaccine distribution infrastructure. As part of the carbon dioxide supply chain, owners/operators in this supply chain need to ensure the most efficient use of this critical asset.
