Description of Laboratory Biorisk Management: Biosafety and Biosecurity

The central premise of this Laboratory Biorisk Management: Biosafety and Biosecurity book are that biological research, clinical, diagnostic, and production/manufacturing communities need to embrace and implement biorisk management systems in their facilities and operations. In most countries, the current system mitigates the risk of accidental infection, accidental release, and intentional misuse of pathogens and toxins based on general, predetermined biosafety levels and/or prescriptive biosecurity regulations. 
Although this approach may have sufficed when the biological life science community was relatively small, and work with particularly dangerous organisms was limited to a few countries and facilities, the life sciences have grown significantly in the last two decades—in both scope and sophistication. 
Much of this growth has extended well beyond North America and Western Europe, and deep into the developing world. Simply, there are more people in more places working with, and even creating, more dangerous pathogens and toxins than ever before—and that trend shows no sign of abating in the future.
