The University of Edinburgh, Biosafety Training Institute (BTI) event


The Institute of Safety in Technology and Research (ISTR) has developed a competency framework for those that seek to progress in the field of biological safety.

This scheme comprises two levels; Level 1 (the Biosafety Practitioner) and Level 2 (the Biosafety Professional) and is widely supported by Biological Safety Practitioners and the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE).  Its launch is timely, following on from the release of the Callaghan Report, which itself supported the setting of competence criteria for Biological Safety Practitioners.  It also allows the UK to be an active partner with other European states in the development of European Biosafety standards.

Learning Outcome

  • effectively manage the health and safety aspects of a biological laboratory
  • give reliable, professional and informed advice and information to colleagues and managers
  • help to ensure that their institution complies with relevant legislation, liaise effectively with enforcing authorities and be aware of the penalties for failing to comply
