Biosafety officers face several organizational challenges. Long hours, short deadlines, and limited resources produce unmanageable situations which biosafety officers must overcome. These situations influence safety practices and require the biosafety officer not only to remain engaged at all times, but to build partnerships that foster a culture of safety.
The Leadership Institute for Biosafety Professionals was developed to provide those serving biosafety an opportunity to get away, to brainstorm, regroup, be mentored, and refreshed for the challenges ahead. It is important for all professionals to take the time to review outside perspectives, gather their thoughts, and listen to experienced experts, and their peers, so they may go back to their institutions and continue to manage a very challenging situation.
The Leadership Institute is a unique collaboration of internationally recognized organizations and institutions in biosafety and biosecurity. A world class faculty share their expertise and experiences in a leadership program designed specifically for people who have responsibilities in managing risks and compliance in research environments.
Leaders get it done – and this program provides sound strategies from experienced leaders – so that participant return to their organizations re-energized, engaged, and strategic in their safety management decisions.
