Description: All stages of the life cycle of a product or process may adversely affect the environment by using up limited resources of materials and energy or by creating waste. Any substitution or change that reduces consumption of materials and energy and production of waste – including, for example, recycling of materials and energy – may be regarded as more environmentally friendly or ‘‘clean’’. Clean technology may also be equated with reduced risk. By drawing a line at the time in the late 1950s and early 1960s when the structure and function of nucleic acids were being discovered, it is possible to distinguish between the earlier, traditional biotechnology of bread and wine making, for example, and second generation biotechnology which, in part, makes use of recombinant DNA technology. It must be stressed, however, that biotechnology is wider than genetic engineering and draws heavily upon process technology, chemistry and classical engineering For any further query please contact us at : Bio Management Northwest, 18601 76th Ave W, Suite 102, Edmonds, WA 98026, telephone No.: 877-524-6411

Description: The process to identify acceptable and unacceptable risks (embracing biosafety risks (risks of accidental infection) and laboratory biosecurity risks (risks of unauthorized access, loss, theft, misuse, diversion or intentional release)) and their potential consequences. Biosafety describes the containment principles, technologies and practices that are implemented to prevent the unintentional exposure to pathogens and toxins, or their accidental release .

Description: A person conducting a business or undertaking must manage risks associated with using, handling, generating or storing of hazardous chemicals at a workplace. In order to manage risk under the WHS Regulations, a duty holder must: a) identify reasonably foreseeable hazards that could give rise to the risk b) eliminate the risk so far as is reasonably practicable. c) if it is not reasonably practicable to eliminate the risk – minimise the risk so far as is reasonably practicable by implementing control measures in accordance with the hierarchy of risk control. d) maintain the implemented control measure so that it remains effective . e) review, and if necessary revise all risk control measures so as to maintain, so far as is reasonably practicable, a work environment that is without risks to health and safety.
