People responsible for biosafety and biorisk management in an organization have to cope with an increasing complexity and diversity of topics. This international course provides a comprehensive review of all essential elements of risk assessment and risk management (Part 1) and highlights topics indispensable for biosafety practitioners to fulfil their tasks (Part 2). The course concludes with an opportunity for participants to join in practical exercises and experience the implementation of biorisk management.

Over the past years, the approach for biorisk management has markedly evolved. From checking compliance with prescribed requirements, the focus has shifted to management systems with protection measures designed in relation to the risks identified in a detailed assessment.

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.
