  5. Risk Assessment SOP
  6. I would like to bring your attention to the SOP for risk assessment. A risk assessment would be required for all new lab-based research or teaching projects. For non-lab based projects, a declaration by the PI to be submitted to ORE, through the HOD is required. Risk assessment form template can be found at here.

    Only the risk assessment of approved or shortlisted projects need to be submitted for review by the Institution Biosafety Committee or the Institution Lab Safety Committee through OSHE. OLS or ORE will be inform you when you are to submit the risk assessment forms. PIs are however strongly encouraged to conduct the risk assessment at the project design stage so that appropriate budget can be set aside to implement the control measures for safety, health and waste disposal.

    The SOPs can found at here and the RAs can be found here.
