Biosafety on RSS

Biosafety is crucial for protecting personnel from infections, preventing laboratory-acquired illnesses, ensuring public health, complying with regulations, preserving research integrity, minimizing environmental impact, and addressing ethical considerations in laboratory work.

Cal State LA uses Risk and Safety Solutions (RSS) to create and manage any Biohazard Use Authorizations (BUAs) to ensure compliance and safety. Only researchers working with biohazards should complete a BUA. The BUA will be processed and overseen by the Biosafety Officer and the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC).
