Biological Exposure Occupational Health Program

The Biological Exposure Occupational Health Program provides awareness training and/or review, handling information, and medical oversight to anyone at Purdue University working with a Risk Group 2 or higher biological agent (BSL 2 or higher laboratory). Program participation is offered at no charge. Participation includes a risk assessment, agent specific exposure awareness training, and a medical assessment. Individual risk assessments and exposure potentials will be reviewed by medical personnel to determine if vaccinations, serum testing, or pre -exposure baseline sample collection is warranted. When necessary, any post exposure accident information will be available as well.

Who should participate?

Anyone at Purdue University that works with Risk Group 2 or higher biological agents (BSL 2 or higher laboratory), rDNA materials, and unfixed human fluids, cell lines, and tissue should participate. If you have any questions contact Robert Golden.
