||Controlling infection hazards in microbiology laboratories
||Maîtrise des risques infectieux en laboratoires de microbiologie [in French]|
||3rd Quarter 2002, No.91, p.231-245. 27 ref.
||Work carried out in microbiology laboratories and in medical laboratories that analyse biological samples from patients involves infection hazards for the workers. The nature and magnitude of these hazards depend on the type of laboratory under study. It is therefore important that laboratory workers and all persons concerned with their occupational hygiene prepare their specific occupational safety and health plan. Based on two studies carried out in hospital environments, the objective of this review article is to describe an approach to evaluating hazards and to define an approach to prevention. Contents: description of the hazards; hazard identification and exposure evaluation; risk control strategy.
