Field Biosafety and Tick Awareness
 This Biosafety Training course is designed as both an initial and refresher training for researchers and students who plan on performing field work. The training will: review the unique hazards associated with field work; review work practices, personal protective equipment and engineering controls for working safely in the field; and describe emergency response and reporting procedures for incidents associated with possible exposures. This training is applicable to personnel who do not intend on performing any biological research but have a high probability of being exposed to ticks/mosquitoes as part of their work. A Quiz is included at the end of this course.
Objective Audience
  • To provide awareness of the range of risks involved in research with ticks. To ensure that those with potential exposure to tick and tick-borne diseases are equipped with the knowledge of how to protect themselves and minimize exposure when working with ticks. To provide instructions on emergency response procedures involving ticks, including tick attachments, exposures and loss or release of ticks.
  • Any person who intends on performing field research.
