In September DATOS has organized its Training on Laboratory Biorisk Management to professionals of tuberculosis laboratories in Myanmar as part of USAID’s ChallengeTB project.

During this training, DATOS introduced participants to the new concept of biorisk management, which combines risk assessment, risk mitigation and performance systems. The participants are now able to apply a systematic method of biosafety and biosecurity risk assessment, eliminate or substitute risks, and formulate adequate mitigation measures based on the outcome of their risk assessment, and ensure effectiveness of their risk mitigation measures through performance management.

Big success – average score: 9 out of 10!
This DATOS training was again highly valued by the participants, who gave the training an average score of 9 out of 10!

Final test
The participants conducted a final test at the end of the training, which they completed with an average score of 8 out of 10.
