Biosafety training

Biosafety training at the biocontainment laboratory in Spiez addresses three target groups:

  • Training of own staff to ensure safety at all times
  • Training of military personnel so that they are able to perform their duties without endangering themselves or others
  • Training of national and international experts at the highest safety level

Spiez Laboratory plans to establish an international centre of excellence for training in biosafety to handle the greatest hazards. With its biocontainment lab Spiez Laboratory will be able to offer training courses that enable participants to practise work at the highest risk level under real (but safe) conditions and to learn the most important aspects of biosafety. For training we have a ‘mock lab’ at our disposal, where we do not work with highly infectious germs.
