Chapter 34: Biosafety
The purpose of this program is to ensure work with biohazardous materials is performed safely. It covers the review and approval of such work, and their use, storage, transportation, and disposal. It applies to researchers, principal investigators, laboratory managers, ESH coordinators, the biosafety program manager, the Occupational Health Center, and the Stanford biosafety representative and Stanford Administrative Panel on Biosafety.
This program does not cover safe handling of human material (blood and body fluids). For those requirements, see Chapter 46, "Blood-borne Pathogens". Moreover, this program does not apply to non-research work with or exposure to biological materials commonly experienced by the general public and not resulting from assigned job duties.
