    Abstract

    The development of the biotechnology industry has prompted an emergence of a field of safety involving existing procedures and new technologies for protecting employees and the general public. A coordinated effort on the part of diverse corporate entities and the corporate safety committee, directed by professional safety personnel, is required in the development of these new safety programs. Commitment of corporate management to accepting the responsibility for ensuring safe working conditions is essential. Recognition of potential hazards and risk assessments for individual companies are also important. Safety in the biotechnology industry must be viewed as an integral and contributory part of the overall business venture.
