BPHL’s biosafety outreach officer offers free, on-site training in biosafety risk assessment and laboratory biosafety for clinical laboratories. For more information, contact Leah Kloss at 813-233-2278 to schedule a class for your facility.

BPHL has provided below, a collection of biosafety risk assessment and biosafety resources for Florida's public health laboratories and sentinel hospital clinical laboratories.

These resources are the product of research from respected biosafety sources that were combined to help create a biorisk program. Please follow your own professional judgement, your institution's established guidelines, and any applicable local, state and federal requirements.
