heal.abstract
Biomedical laboratories are full of various biological risks. All these risks should be identified, assessed and controlled, in order to prevent accidents, laboratory infections and loss of lives, and improve the overall safety and quality. Controlling the biological risks in the laboratory requires the identification of these risks with a risk assessment, following by the implementation of the hierarchy of controls, which is a combination of engineering and administrative controls, good microbiological practices and procedures and the appropriate personal protective equipment. A Biorisk Management system must be put in place, in order to sufficiently develop and implement the risk policy, the procedures and the responsibilities in the laboratory, with the objective to eliminate or to minimize to an acceptable level the biological risks for the laboratory professionals, the community and the environment. Greek Biomedical laboratories still have to introduce a biorisk management approach and a Biosafety culture. This introduction will help to make the Biomedical laboratories in Greece a safer workplace and to improve the quality of diagnostic testing performed in these laboratories, because standard operating procedures contribute both in Biosafety and in Quality. That approach not only needs changes in the organizations themselves and at the national/regional level, but also at the regulatory level in Greece.
