Abstract The purpose of this training manual is to teach research laboratory personnel the best means to reduce or eliminate biological risks in their work. The main biological hazards present in such work are surveyed. Five principal approaches to safety are detailed: correct hazard evaluation (taking into consideration the microorganism and establishing a protocol for its handling); proper laboratory design; equipment adapted to the risks (microbiological safety station etc.); safe laboratory practices; effective medical surveillance.
