EBSA Thursday - WHO LBM4 – Biorisk management beyond risk groups and biosafety levels
The WHO Laboratory Biosafety Manual (LBM) serves as a de facto global standard that presents best practices and sets trends in biosafety. The recent publication of the fourth edition expands the thorough, evidence-based and transparent assessment of the risks, allowing safety measures to be balanced with the actual risk of working with biological agents on a case-by-case basis.
A challenging shift from routines based on levels? An opportunity to allow optimizing risk management, in particular in less resourced envrionments? Join us and discuss with two of the LBM4 contributors, active EBSA members, providing their insights on the (r)evolution this version marks and how biosafety professionals can use it in their daily practice.
