The aim of the Workshop-I was to provide introduction and awareness in laboratory biosafety, emergency preparedness and safe use of Biosafety Cabinets. This include lectures and Hands-on training of the participants by experts in the field of Biosafety. On the completion of the workshop, the participants got studied about the importance of safety measures to be taken in lab, disposal of waste generated in labs and work safely in their routine lab experiments in diagnostics and research labs.

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.
