Laboratory Safety - Biological Hazards Thumbnail
For Multiple Users
Laboratories and research facilities that work with potentially infectious biological materials can present a number of hazards to students and workers. In order to prevent unintentional worker exposure to or accidental release of biohazardous materials, laboratories must institute biosafety practices. During this course, learners will be introduced to the basics of laboratory biosafety and Laboratory Biosafety Levels (BSLs). The course also includes information about common biological hazards, personal protective equipment, housekeeping and decontamination, working after hours and common first aid practices. This course is designed for all workers who, during the course of their regular work duties, may come in contact with biological hazards. The focus is on laboratory workers in research or other settings. This course was created in accordance with guidelines from the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as applicable OSHA standards.
