BIOLOGICAL HAZARDS
Definitions
• Hazardous biologics are those that will
cause injury to humans, animals or the
environment.
• These are classified by Biosafety Level
(BSL), which refers to the mode of
transport and the level of infection.
• BSL 1 is a normally occurring biological at
environmental levels which may cause
limited pathogenesis in humans, animals or
plants. BSL 1 are allowable on campus.
BSL 1 Definition
BIOLOGICAL HAZARDS
• BSL 2 are classified as having potential
for pathogenesis but not airborne
transport. Low potential for vector
infection or death. UMES is working
toward a BSL 2 lab. We cannot order
BSL 2 biologics to date?
• BSL 3 are classified as being
pathogenic and airborne transport.
High potential for vector infection.
These biologics usually result in death.
We cannot order BSL 3 or higher
AREA BSL NOTIFICATION
• Anyone entering as part of work or research
must be trained concerning the hazards in
their workplace.
• All labs using biologics should have the
level of the biologic posted on the door and
limited access.
• Yellow BIOSAFETY warning notices, for
research with BSL 2 or higher, must be
posted on the exterior door.
HANDLING HAZARDOUS BIOLOGICS
• Ordering of BSL materials must be
approved by the EHS and the BSC.
• BSL 1 require minimum protection of
gloves and goggles.
• BSL 2 require limited access and exposure
and should not be used without prior
instruction from EHS and the UMES
Biosafety committee.
• BSL 3 and higher are not allowed on
campus at this time.
BIOSAFETY DISINFECTION
• Surfaces used with biologics must be
disinfected by the method described in the
MSDS.
• At a minimum, this includes the use of a
disinfecting compound or device, such as
UV light.
• Gloves, even unused, may not be worn
outside the laboratory.
HAZARDOUS BIOLOGICAL
WASTE DISPOSAL
• Biologics, including media, and cells,
should be autoclaved before disposal.
• Use a regular PE bag and autoclave tape
to autoclave BSL 1 level biologics and
trash.
• Use a sealed box inside a regular PE bag
and autoclave tape to autoclave BSL 1
spent needles and sharps.
• The BIOSAFETY orange autoclave bags
and/or sharps disposal boxes are reserved
for use with BSL2 and higher.
HAZARDOUS BIOLOGICAL
WASTE DISPOSAL
• Disposal procedure and the label must
follow the instructions provided for
Hazardous Biological Waste Disposal
located on the EHS website:
– www.umes.edu/EHS
• Label all hazardous chemical waste
bottles, with the appropriate EHS label
prior to conducting the experiment.
Biological Waste Disposal
Procedure
Charge for Waste Disposal
• Your grant/department will be charged for
all hazardous waste disposal. This may be
included in the overhead of grants.
• Unknown waste costs $4000/bottle. Please
label materials and waste.
• It is a violation to “dump” your waste in
another area. It must disposed from the area
from which it was generated.
Penalties for Violation
• You can be fined $1000 per day per
violation by either UMES, any state
authority or any federal authority.
• If you knowingly violate any UMES
mandates, you will be fined and face
possible imprisonment.
• If you witness any violations, you should
report those to EHS immediately.

Laboratory Safety – Video Training
• Proper laboratory procedure,
• Maintaining safe laboratory techniques.
• At this time, please play the American
Chemical Society’s film on Safety.
Laboratory Safety
• In addition to learning experimental method, a
purpose of this laboratory is to train students to
develop good, safe work habits.
• To establish these habits, these guidelines assume
that the student is always exposed to the most
hazardous situation, use with the strong, toxic,
reactive corrosive, flammable chemicals. In
reality, you probably will not be exposed to these
in our labs.
• We expect any student at doctoral level of training
to have the ability to make an informed decision
on how to protect themselves.
Laboratory Safety
• Another purpose of this class is to train
students for professional employment.
• Therefore, the students must follow the
guidelines outlined by the Pharmacy
Faculty Coordinator, their TA and the
UMES guidelines.
• We also strongly encourage the students
not to request any exceptions from these
rules.
