 en Biotechnology in Animal Science: Impact in Africa and Issues Related to Biosafety
Hinson, C.A.


Two Environments are in danger of exposure to hazardous biotechnology products, namely, the developmental laboratory and the field where the technology is applied. Both scenarios require separate risk assessments to understand the physical, chemical and biological dangers involved and to develop appropriate safety regulations for each environment. The paper highlights the common hazardous substances and situations in biotechnology laboratories, and considere the need for safety regulations to protect the manufacturers, users, disposers and transporters of substances hazardous to health. Animal production achievements in Africa associated with biotechnological procedures are discussed.

Biotechnology laboratories, risk assessment, safety regulations
