Introduction;

This checklist does not lead to a score of the laboratory. It is merely meant as a tool to help in the process of upgrading safety and laboratory facility. It helps in identifying elements that need to be improved. It is important that the laboratories comply with the appropriate safety and facility requirements. It is however important that the laboratory perceives safety as a high priority element of quality. Performing the assessment is the responsibility of the biosafety officer. The laboratory supervisor is responsible for formulating the action points based on the outcome of the assessment and coordinate the execution of all action points. Especially the latter is important since only the laboratory supervisor has the authority to make sure that everybody completes the action points assigned to him/her.Download  Moi University Biosafety Checklist

The IBC’s primary objective is to safeguard protection of personnel, the general public, and the environment. To meet this goal, the IBC imposes requirements for safe laboratory and biological safety practices; reviews and approves policies, procedures, training, programs and facilities pursuant to the safe use of biological agents, other biological materials, and toxins.

Biosafety level designations are based on a composite of the design features, construction, containment facilities, equipment, practices and operational procedures required for working with agents from various RISK GROUPS (Level 1 – 4).

Therefore, for the committee to achieve its goals for safe laboratory and biological safety practices; and approved policies, producers, training, programs and facilities pursuant to safe use of biological agents/microorganisms and hazardous chemical etc; the committee needs to audit all the colleges/schools/departments including University clinics using the below check list;
