Biosafety Manual

It is a requirement that a biosafety manual be prepared when an activity involves infectious and/or recombinant DNA materials. This biosafety manual should be prepared to assist investigators, technicians, and collaborators in routine and/or emergency operation using rDNA or infectious materials. The Biosafety Manual should also be available to safety, and emergency response personnel in case of an incident, accident, or an emergency in a specific lab area. It should be a working document, reviewed periodically, updated as necessary, and readily accessible to all personnel working in a lab or area with infectious and/or recombinant agents. A training / familiarization sheet for all personnel working in a lab or area with infectious and/or recombinant agents should be part of the Biosafety Manual. A loose-leaf binder that can easily accommodate new materials is an effective option for maintaining a laboratory Biosafety Manual. You may find it helpful to use these bullet points as section or chapter headings.
