The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has created regulations and guidelines that are recommended while working with biological materials, specifically, with blood borne pathogens. Join this webinar as we review these guidelines.

Join in this webinar as we review how best to approach biosafety. We will also discuss how to implement an effective management program for blood borne infections, safety and health, laboratory safety, infectious material and blood infection. This webinar is intended to help you build on a framework to set up a successful management policy particularly if you work in a laboratory with exposure to viruses or bacteria that are biological hazards. This session will show you a better way to manage your Biosafety program,
