Five Day Wet Workshop (July 1 – 5 2018, COMSTECH Islamabad)

Pakistan Biological Safety Association (PBSA) in collaboration with Fogarty International Center (FIC) hosted a five day Wet Workshop in COMSTECH Islamabad from July 1 to July 5. Participants were trained in biorisk management by Sean Kaufman, founder of Safer Behaviors. The participants were exposed to different scenarios in the lab such as evacuation, needle stick injuries, and dealing with an unconscious individual. The participants were also told to present on different topics on the last day, which also enhanced their communication skills while dealing with mental noise, disturbances caused by participants, and workshop scenarios. It was concluded successfully, and eligible participants of this wet workshop will become trainers in their institutions and future PBSA workshops.

Being elected as the President of Pakistan Biological Safety Association (PBSA) is a true honour for me. I believe that promoting awareness, knowledge and understanding of biosafety at the regional and national level is responsibility of each member and trainer of the PBSA. This organization is commended in many of the national and international forums for its preventive training for Risk Assessment and management, that was much needed at the time of COVID-19 outbreak. Additionally, it has promoted strong collaborations and affiliations with various Biosafety developmental programs that align with international standards to acknowledge and recognize biosafety as a separate scientific discipline within Pakistan. I strongly agree that “no one is safe until everyone is safe”, and would like to work with the PBSA team to implement this approach as far and wide as possible.
