The importance of adequate safety practices within the SRL is critical to the overall function of such facilities.  Working in a "shared environment" in which a large variety of biological samples are introduced requires a reasonable set of "best practices" to ensure the safety of all individuals who access the shared facility.  The best practices presented here represent what should be minimally present to provide a safe working environment.

Seminar Objectives
  • describe the minimal practices for insuring a safe laboratory environment in a SRL or core lab
  • implement the activities involved in assessing the potential biosafety risks in a SRL or core lab
  • develop a plan to minimize the exposure of staff and users to potential hazards
  • consider the factors of the lab physical environment which are consistent with a safe work place
  • recognize the importance of administrative factors in the assurance of a safe work environment
