    BBP - BSOH online event: Biological agents: where the biosafety coordinator and the occupational hygienst meet

    In the footsteps of our previous joint meeting in 2017, BSOH and BBP again joined forces to organize an event. This year, we will focus on where and how the occupational hygienist and the biosafety coordinator can collaborate. By means of practical cases, the roles of both functions and the opportunities for collaboration will be highlighted.

    BBP workshop on risk assessment (Cancelled)

    CANCELLED

    A half-day workshop focusing on risk assessment. Not only will you be introduced to the ins and outs of risk assessment, there will also be plenty of opportunity to practice in risk assessment by yourself by means of case studies and an interactive discussion. Also, we will take the opportunity to highlight the recent accomplishments and future plans of the BBP Task Forces and Working Groups. The ideal opportunity to find out what BBP has done and hopes to do for you in the future to support you as a biosafety professional. Moreover, you may be challenged to join in one of the Task Forces or Working Groups yourself!

    Symposium on emergency preparedness and response

    Organized by the Belgian Biosafety Professionals (BBP) and the Dutch Association for Biosafety Officers (BVFp)

    Erasmus University Rotterdam, Netherlands

    Working with hazardous biological material or providing the necessary support to have people working safely with the hazardous material is our day-to-day job. For that, we are experienced in assessing the risk of contained use activities, to train our coworkers and to watch over a culture of biosafety.

    BBP workshop "The biocide legislation and its impact on contained laboratories, greenhouses and animal facilities"

    Geo-Instituut 200E, Celestijnenlaan 200e – Heverlee (Leuven)

    Are you finding your way in the biocide legislation? Or are you struggling, as many colleagues, with questions like:

    • Can I still use particular products (e.g. Virkon®) and, if so, for how long?
    • If not, what are suitable alternative products?
    • Do we need to change our decontamination procedures?  
    • What are the consequences of the biocide legislation on my organization?

    We hope to offer clarity during the BBP workshop
