Risk Assessment Resources
All PIs are required to work with the biological safety program to conduct a risk assessment every time they plan on commencing a new experiment involving biological materials. The biological safety program has begun working on a project to develop general risk assessments to be used for commonly used biological agents at UWM. Use the resources below to help evaluate research in your laboratory.
The following links are intended to help PIs, lab managers, and other lab personnel to determine the needs for their research facility. It is the responsibility of each research group to utilize these resources to complete the IBC Registration form for research or teaching.
