The links that were on the ISAC website are below (the web page is
attached). The most recent is the CDC Biosafety in Microbiological and
Biomedical Laboratories (BMBL) 4th Edition. Note the chapters on risk
assessment and biosafety level criteria. They will help you define
precautions required or recommended for work with various agents in your


Biosafety Guidelines and Links to Information on the Internet

Many of the biological safety issues are addressed in the links below. In
particular, the 4th edition of Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical
Laboratories addresses biological, chemical, as well as radiological safety
concerns in the laboratory. There is also a section for risk assessment
regarding pathogens.
