The 2018 Biosafety Manual is now online!


The 2018 edition of the UW Biosafety Manual is here! The most significant changes included revisions to information on laboratory access, more information on proper laboratory attire and personal protective equipment (PPE), and a revised description of the occupational health program including the serum banking policy and immunization guidelines. A list of changes is included in the log of changes.

All laboratories or facilities using biohazards need to have an electronic link or paper copy of the current manual available. The manual is a resource to help keep you safe during biological research and is a reference of the policies that apply to work with biohazards.
