    Evaluation du risque biologique

    La gestion des risques biologiques dans divers environnements dans lesquels des matières biologiques dangereuses sont utilisées, que ce soit dans la recherche, le diagnostic, les installations de production ou les unités animales, est de la plus haute importance. Les professionnels de la biosécurité jouent très souvent l'interface entre différents acteurs tels que les scientifiques, l'ingénierie, le personnel d'entretien ou de nettoyage.

    Gene therapy: main approaches and biosafety issues​

    Though the idea for gene therapy was put forward in 1972, it was not until 2003 in China and 10 years later in US, that DNA drug actually appeared on the market. Since then, at least nine gene therapies have been approved for a few cancer types, genetic disorders and viral infections and a great number of research projects and clinical trials are underway in many countries.

    ISO 35001 – An introduction into the biorisk management standard

    The ISO 35001 standard on “Biorisk management for laboratories and other related organisations - is the first internationally recognized management standard to specifically address hazards associated with laboratories where biological materials are handled at all containment levels. It sets out the requirements for a management system to enable organizations to effectively identify, monitor, and control risk associated with laboratory biosafety and biosecurity.  It also provides a structured approach to managing risk associated with people, facilities and working procedures in laboratory environments.

    Biological Risk Assessment – How safe are we in our labs if we apply the risk based approach according to the new WHO Biosafety Manual?

    Managing biological risks in various environments in which hazardous biological materials are used, be it in research, diagnostic, production facilities or animal units is of utmost importance. Biosafety professionals very often play the interface between different stakeholders such as scientists, engineering, maintenance or cleaning staff.

    During the COVID-19 pandemic, biosafety professionals were constantly challenged and had to apply the risk based approach again and again nearly on a daily basis. Initial risk assessments for activities in the diagnostic laboratory had to be adapted to the new conditions (e.g. shortage of safety equipment) and at the same time the safety of all laboratory staff had to be ensured.

    How can we deal with the increased workload during thee COVID-19 pandemic and at the same time guarantee the safety of our employees?

    In this webinar these and other questions will be addressed by using the risk based approach of the new WHO biosafety manual.
