Biosafety level 3 (BSL-3) laboratories are designed to protect individuals and the public from highly infectious and pathogenic organisms by using enhanced engineering and administrative controls. The primary hazards to the individuals who work within the laboratory or provide support to its operations involve exposure to infectious materials. The organization’s comprehensive BSL-3 program plays a key role in identifying and controlling potential risks.
The learner will be provided with practical information on the types and operations of biosafety cabinets, how BSL-3 facility operations are maintained and validated, the type of personal protective equipment required, waste management and emergency management processes used to prevent the potential spread of contamination, and the occupational health program necessary to mitigate the risk to the individuals who work in the BSL-3.
