Research biological agents

Stoffenmanager® BioRisk

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, more attention has been paid to the health risks posed by biological agents. It is estimated that transmittable diseases alone will cause 310,000 work-related deaths worldwide by 2021. Currently, the minimum exposure requirements for biological agents in work situations are set according to the European Directive “2000/54/EC”, but there is still no standard for its assessment. This often makes it challenging for occupational health and safety professionals to assess exposure to biological agents. In addition, resources for hazard identification, risk assessment and implementation of control measures for biological agents are scarce.

“With Stoffenmanager® BioRisk, occupational health professionals get the tools and necessary knowledge to easily assess exposure to biological agents themselves.”

BioRisk Pilot project

That is why Stoffenmanager®, in close collaboration with an international scientific consortium ( IRSST- Canada, Lisbon School of Health Technology /Polytechnic Institute of Lisbon; NFA - Denmark and AEHI, -Spain ), is developing a new qualitative risk assessment tool for exposure to biological agents as a valuable addition to companies related to this. With the project, we have now reached the phase where we want to test exposure scenarios together with companies in different sectors. Do you work in livestock farming, animal shelter or veterinary sector, agriculture, horticulture or forestry, waste processing industry, water treatment, healthcare, pharmaceutical industry or food production? Then the Stoffenmanager® BioRisk may be of interest to you! Be part of the development of this new tool!

What does this include

Our experts will plan a videocall with you to exchange which exposure scenarios you would like to have estimated. You will receive the BioRisk assessment report from us (free of charge) which we discuss in a second videocall.
