The Southern Biosafety Association was founded in 2008 to increase the knowledge of biological safety issues through a network of resources in the south region of the United States including Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico.
Our Goals are:
• To promote the study, evaluation, and control of biohazards in the workplace and the environment.
• To encourage an interest and knowledge of current regulations regarding bloodborne pathogens, medical waste disposal, select agents and toxins, recombinant DNA research, and any other emerging issue with regards to biological safety.
• To discuss methods of implementing programs for biological safety in university research, biotechnology research, hospitals, and medical and dental offices throughout the south region.
The Southern Biosafety Association is an Affiliate of the American Biological Safety Association - ABSA.
