October is ABSA’s 2018 Biosafety Month! The theme of this year is “Promoting a Culture of Biosafety and Responsibility”, and institutions are encouraged to take the opportunity to promote their biosafety and biosecurity programs.
If you visit ABSA’s Biosafety Month website, there is a flyer that can be customized with your organization’s information and events that will take place during the month. All levels within the organization should be encouraged to participate in promoting a strong biosafety culture. Senior management can actively participate in biosafety events held during the month, and researchers can encourage each other to actively foster the biosafety efforts. Consider hosting interactive biosafety training sessions, or develop fun games to encourage participation. There is time to brainstorm on creative options that will fit the culture of your organization!
