The Biosafety Office conducts annual biosafety inspections for all labs working with biological material. Periodic inspections promote a safer lab environment and provide a time for us to work directly with researchers to improve biosafety practices as a form of hands-on training. We strongly recommend that labs prepare for their annual biosafety inspection by completing a self-inspection using the Biosafety Self-Inspection Form. This electronically fillable form is an exact replica of the form used by the Biosafety Office during annual biosafety inspections:
Note: A successful biosafety inspection within the past year is a prerequisite for Biological Materials Safeguards Committee and Institutional Biosafety Committee approvals.
