  • The Biological Safety program is designed to maintain safe conditions in biological research and prevent harm to humans and the environment. Safe biological research includes appropriate facilities and equipment, adequate training, proper laboratory practices and safe working conditions.

    You can find detailed information about biosafety in the UF Biosafety Manual including biosafety policies and safe work practices. If you are working with biohazards, be sure that an electronic link or paper copy of the UF Biosafety Manual is available in the laboratory.
