Biosecurity

Biosecurity is an emerging discipline in environmental health and safety.  Its focus is on securing and controlling access to dangerous pathogens that may present bioterrorism threats to our nation.  The principals of Proven Practices have lead collaborative initiatives involving health and safety professionals and scientists to help guide the development of practical federal policies and regulations for possession, use and transfer of select agents and toxins.  Since founding Proven Practices, the U.S. Departments of Defense, and Health and Human Services have sought Dr. Barkley’s expertise in developing best practices for managing occupational, environmental, and biosecurity risks associated with the handling of select agents in research laboratories.
