The Importance of Biosafety Training and Risk Assessment

Biosafety training and risk assessment training are essential for maintaining global health and safety. While you can be sure that your laboratory is following all necessary protocols and guidelines, a biosafety specialist can help fill in the gaps and optimize performance and efficiency.

Why is biosafety managing training important?

After all, you never want to assume that your facility's biosecurity practices are up to standards. Without a doubt, you want to know that they are comprehensive and effective.

Biosafety training ensures that you and your team (or other participants) handle infectious organisms and hazardous biological materials properly. This not only protects the laboratory technician, but also everyone who comes into contact.

Biosafety also helps you understand and apply risk management specific to your facility. In risk management, it's your responsibility to find the best way to go while minimizing unexpected problems. In principle, risk management is a proactive action that leads to appropriate mitigation.

Regardless of the level of limitation, whether it is BSL-1 or BSL-4, biosecurity training is considered a best practice for all involved.

The two most important factors at the front in the field of biosafety are (1) mitigation and (2) risk assessment. When you combine these two measures, you prevent laboratory worker exposure and exposure outside of the laboratory.
