The Biosafety Program was established to promote safety in research studies, prevent disease, ensure safe handling of biological agents, ensure safe disposal of biohazardous waste and comply with applicable institutional policies and regulatory requirements. This manual will describe the roles and responsibilities, biosafety procedures, work practices and engineering controls, spill response, emergency procedures and proper waste disposal that should be implemented to minimize exposure to infectious agents.

The Biosafety Manual provides university-wide safety guidelines for all SFA faculty, staff, students and visitors working with biohazards (biological agents, biological toxins, and recombinant DNA). Faculty members and research personnel that work with biohazardous agents should be familiar with all policies, procedures and applicable regulations.
