This is a list of resources that I have collected. The Dow Chemical CompanyÕs video provides a nice introduction to the differences between Biosafety Level 1 and Biosafety Level 2. It also describes good microbiological practices.

I hope this helps.

As of this morning, I have a "pop training" now scheduled for Friday for biology students conducting BSL-1 level undergrad research. Their future biolab work is entirely unpredictable, so I'd like to include a list of key references they might want to know about in the future. I'm pretty well covered on the chemical safety side in this regard, but I wonder if anyone on the list has put together a list of 4 or 5 key safety references that beginning bio lab workers should be aware of. I know about the large professional volumes like BMBL, but am looking for something more friendly for this audience. Something like "SACL for the Biolab".
Thanks for any help with this.
