Research Involving BioHazards
Research and teaching activities may involve working with real or potential biological hazards. Brock is committed, through the provision of safe facilities, activities, and legislative compliance,to protect its workers and students therefore; the Biosafety Program at Brock University has been established.
The overall goal is to take every reasonable precaution in protecting the various stakeholders including employees, students, the community, and the environment, from exposure to hazardous biological materials. This in turn requires that all staff, students, and visitors who may be potentially exposed to such materials participate and comply with the program.
This underlying philosophy is called the internal responsibility system, and is the basis of all health and safety programs.
