Against this background, people responsible for biorisk management in an organization are challenged to cope with an increasing complexity and diversity of questions. The vast majority learns its role “on the job” and can only build a curriculum through attending meetings and courses.
This International Course provides a comprehensive review of all the essential elements of biorisk management, strengthening biosafety practitioners to build their own approach.
At the end of the course participants will be able to:
Identify potential hazardous biological materials and the risks associated with them.
Select appropriate means to minimize risk and to protect against or prevent exposure.
Recognize applicable legal requirements and prepare the necessary documents to obtain authorizations.
Understand how to run a biorisk management program.
The course will be based on examples with microorganisms in laboratories, but also genetically modified plants and animals, as well as large scale activities will be covered.
