As part of the improvements to the laboratory safety program, all BSL-1 and BSL-2 laboratories are required to be inspected, and lab staff needs to develop a lab safety manual and participate in lab safety training.

BSL1 and BSL2 Labs

  1. Prepare your lab for BSL-1 or BSL-2 inspection by referencing 
    Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories (BMBL) guidelines (See Section IV for Best Practices).

  2. Contact EHS (see below) to schedule an inspection of your lab. Refer to either the BSL-1 (Excel document) or BSL-2 (Excel document) inspection checklists.

  3. Complete Biological Risk Assessment Worksheet  http://www.cdc.gov/biosafety/publications/BiologicalRiskAssessmentWorksheet.pdf

  4. Prepare your lab-specific written protocols by using the format provided by EHS.

  5. Lab staff is required to take Biosafety training.  Contact EHS and I to schedule required training.
