Working with Biologicals
The Medical College of Wisconsin is committed to ensuring a safe, healthy and compliant workplace for all employees and visitors as well as environmentally sound practices. To achieve that goal the College has established an Institutional Biosafety Committee which reviews all work with biological materials that could pose an occupational health or environmental release risk. The Committee members work with Principal Investigators in the establishment of a safe working environment for employees and an environmentally sound waste stream process. The scope of Committee review includes the handling of bloodborne pathogens sources, biological toxins, infectious micro-organisms and genetically engineered constructs.
