Biohazards are agents that are biological in nature and have the capability to cause harm to biological organisms. This module is intended to provide a brief overview of the area of BioSafety. A Powerpoint presentation provides an introduction to types of Biohazards and discusses sources of biohazards, classifications of biohazards by risk group, and methods of reducing risk from biohazards. Also discussed are Waste Handling and Universal Precautions. The module is oriented towards dealing with biohazards in a laboratory or clinical setting. Included with the module are several examples of Biosafety Manuals that are typically used in corporate (BiosafetyManual.zip) or public health organizations such as the US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
