    EBSA21 - Course N - Allergies and toxins from animals, plants and microorganisms-think outside of the box

    Handling biological materials in research and development, as transporting them has implications on several levels. While the hazardous situation is not always obvious, potential consequences can be very serious.

    EBSA21 - Course M - Large scale GMP and containment, do disposables fit in?

    Manufacturing protocols have particular focus on good manufacturing practices (GMP) aiming at product safety. Biosafety professionals need to understand the differences and how to communicate with GMP professionals about biosafety and biosafety measures.

    EBSA21 - Course L - Sharing experiences on the implementation of a biorisk management programme

    Breaches of biosafety and biosecurity have emphasised that management failure is normally the root cause of accidents and incidents with biological agents and toxins.

    EBSA21 - Course K - Behaviour-based (bio)safety

    This course intends to inspire you. To convince you that safety not only pays (for you and the company), but also is fun and moreover a serious profession. A profession that involves many areas of knowledge and a multitude of skills, amongst others those dealing with human behaviour.

    EBSA21 - Course E - Developing PPE donning and doffing protocols for BSL3 (practical)

    This is an introductory course for those interested in the selection and use of personal protective equipment when applied to protection of workers in the Microbiological biosafety level 3 context.

  6. 18 April 2018

    EBSA21 - Course D - Emergency preparedness in a BSL3 (scenarios)

    This is intermediate course is designed for those who are involved in writing plans for responding to emergencies involving BSL3 laboratories

    EBSA21 - Course A - The absolute essentials of biosafety

    The organization of biosafety and biosecurity in an institution where biological materials are handled, be it genetically modified or pathogenic, requires a broad range of competences and abilities by individuals who advise management and personnel on the safe and secure use of biological material. As of today, interested individuals gain these competences and abilities by a step by step learning and practical application process. The present course on absolute essentials of biosafety would like to serve as a starting point in this process.

  8. 17 April 2018

    EBSA21 - Course B - Risk assessment methodologies

    Management of risks related to activities with hazardous biological material, be it research, development, production or diagnostics, requires risk assessment at various stages of the activity. To begin with, the hazards of the various biological materials need to be estimated. Also, when genetic modification is involved methods and tools such as viral vectors, plasmids and types of inserts need to be considered.

    EBSA21 - Course J - BSC – making the most of it

    Biosafety cabinets are the most important and most widely used primary containment equipment in microbiological and biomedical laboratories (BSL-2, BSL-3 and BSL-4) for the protection of workers, the environment and the product.
