The Laboratory Biorisk Management: Biosafety and Biosecurity is a book that introduces the concept of biorisk management that encompasses both biosafety and biosecurity. It discusses practical information and tools that laboratory managers would need to implement biorisk management, including risk assessment, facility design and controls, mitigation measures, training and more. The basis for the biorisk management paradigm outlined is a three-pronged, multi-disciplinary model of assessment, mitigation, and performance (the AMP model). The application of the methodologies, criteria, and guidance outlined in the book helps to reduce the risk of laboratories becoming the sources of infectious disease outbreaks.
