Submitted by [email protected] on Thu, 09/10/2020 - 11:31 AM


***Thursday, October 29 and Friday, October 30, 2020 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm CDT*** Proactive biosafety professionals need to be involved and knowledgeable in the operation, maintenance and certification of their containment facilities and building systems. Frequently, the biosafety professional is called upon to participate in the planning, design, and validation of a new biocontainment laboratory or renovation of an existing facility. This course provides basic engineering principles that are useful in the planning, design, construction, maintenance and operation of a BSL-3 or high-containment facility. The principles are expanded to BSL-4 or maximum containment facilities for clarity between BSL-3 and BSL-4 requirements. To participate in these activities, the biosafety professional will need a foundation of engineering fundamentals, to develop skills to ask questions in engineering terms, and the confidence to question the answers.
