University personnel who utilize biological agents are expected to implement prudent practices, precautions, and handling techniques for biological agents as a means of promoting a safe and healthful environment for the University community. Please take time to familiarize yourself with the Biological Safety Program.

We hope that the resources shown on this web page will assist you in working safety with biological agents. If you have questions or need training, please feel free to contact Katherine Shorter at 2740 or Al Simpson at 4672.
