The three-training days would be designed as follow-ons to the December 2011 workshops, and would focus mostly on the principles and applications of laboratory biorisk assessment; the characterization and evaluation of potential laboratory biosafety and biosecurity risks. Thus, the objective of the coming workshop will be around the following points:

  • Define and discuss the concepts of biological risk and risk assessment
  • Describe the role of risk assessment within biorisk management using the “AMP” (Assessment, Mitigation, Performance) model and CWA 15793
  • Discuss the elements of laboratory biosafety risk assessment
  • Discuss the elements of laboratory biosecurity risk assessment
  • Understand different stages of the risk assessment process, including risk characterization and evaluation
  • Introduce methods to measure biorisk, including a structured biorisk assessment methodology (BioRAM)
  • Enable students to design and conduct structured risk assessments
  • Understand different types of biological waste, and appropriate collection and storage methods
  • Understand the factors that influence the selection of waste treatment and disposal approaches
  • Define and discuss the concept of “performance” in the biorisk management system context
  • Discuss rationales for biorisk management system performance analysis
  • Discuss performance evaluation methods
  • Discuss CWA 15793:2011 as an international framework for managing biorisks

Who can participate?

PHD Students, confirmed researchers and professors at the universities, working on animal, human health and plant pathology.
