Biological agents, plant or animal, are classified according to biosafety level risk groups. These classifications presume ordinary circumstances in the research laboratory, or growth of agents in small volumes for diagnostic and experimental purposes. BSL-1 risk group contains biological agents that pose low risk to personnel and the environment. BIOLOGICAL AGENTS (HBA): SCOPE REGULATIONS FOR HAZARDOUS BIOLOGICAL AGENTS (HBA): SCOPE Scope: Every employer and self-employed person where: zHBA is deliberately produced, processed, used, handled, stored or transported zIncident or high risk exposure to a HBA in the following work situations: food production plantsFile Size: KB.

  This type of hazard can be in the form of allergies, infections (e.g. hepatitis), and even cancer. Any worker that deals with the elements mentioned above needs to take appropriate measures to not only avoid biological hazards, but to also avoid creating them for others, such as in food handling/5(4). You need to describe the control measures which will be used to protect people, animals, plants and other aspects of the environment from exposure to biological agents and hazards in the work. COSHH requires that the risks of exposure to biological agents and hazards is prevented or where this is.

How many categories can bioterrorism agents be separated into depending on how easily they can be spread and the severity of illness/death they cause? Three (Cat A, Cat B, Cat C) This category of agents is the highest risk, is easily spread/transmitted, results in high death rates, and cause public panic. † Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens () Categorisation of Biological Agents According to Hazard and Categories of Containment, 4th edition, Health & Safety Executive (HSE) books, Sudbury, UK, ().
