Occupational Health and Safety in Laboratory Animal Facilities

Speaker
  • Occupational Health and Safety & MS, Veterinary Sciences ResearchLaboratory Animal Facility Manager, CIEMAT
    Biography
      I was born in Madrid (Spain) in 1964, trained in Veterinary and specialized in Occupational Health and Safety (OHS).
      I began working with laboratory animals in 1991, at the CIEMAT Laboratory Animal Facility. Nowadays I'm still working there.
      I was first trained in OHS at the Spanish Government NIOHS in 2002. Since then, I have participated as faculty in many courses, and meetings presentations … both at national and international level.
      I'm the Director of the course "OHS in Animal Research" annually organized by CIEMAT and SECAL.
      I'm the responsible of the OHS section in ‘Animales de Laboratorio' (SECAL scientific paper).
      I have published also several book chapters, articles, posters, conferences about laboratory animal OHS.
       

    Abstract

    I will present the most common hazards, as they are perceived by workers (traditionally zoonoses, bites and scratches, allergies). Then I will present real data on accidents in research facilities including our facility. This will show that generally we are not focused on risks that are medically or numerically important. Finally I will talk about ‘emergent risks' (psychological and emotional risks) and will present the results of a Spanish study and the proposal for a ‘Spanish-speakers' global survey focused on these risks.
