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.

The Pakistan Biological Safety Association (PBSA) in collaboration with Fogarty International Center (FIC), National Institute of Health (NIH) US; Khyber Medical University (KMU); and Bioprism trainers have compiled a guideline and behavioral cues for SOP implementation post-lockdown, to be implemented in institutions and offices and organizations.

These were developed

to ensure safe resumption of activities during the COVID-19 pandemic. We believe there is a need to have concise and clearly defined SOPs not only to ensure hazard reduction and risk control, but also to endorse the responsibility entrusted by the Government of Pakistan during COVID-19. This document covers safe entry and exit protocols, workplace safety ethics and guidelines for institutional management to provide a safe environment in the workplace premises. We have prepared these guidelines so that various institutions and offices, can use theme as a draft to formulate their own institution- specific customized protocols. These guidelines are not specific to health care facilities or laboratories which deal directly with patient care or sample processing.

The guidelines can be downloaded from the following link: SOPs for safe culture_PBSA_KMU
