Biological Safety

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 Al Simpson at 901.678.4672.

Exposure Control Plan Reminder

If personnel in your department are potentially exposed to blood or other potentially infectious materials, federal regulations, state law, and University policy require implementation of an exposure control plan. Click here for a copy of the model exposure control plan.
