Biological Health Hazards

Biological health hazards include bacteria, viruses, parasites and moulds or fungi. They can pose a threat to human health when they are inhaled, eaten or come in contact with skin. They can cause illness such as food poisoning, tetanus, respiratory infections or parasite infection. We provide expertise and resources on monitoring and controlling biological hazards that are transmitted through food, air or water.
