Microbiological safety and containment Standard

The Australian/New Zealand Standard 2243.3:2022 Safety in laboratories Part 3: Microbiological safety and containment is your first source of information about biosafety and microbiological lab safety. It’s the Standard that Australia uses to describe the management of biohazards of all kinds. All Curtin’s biosafety systems have been developed from this Standard, and you should always refer to it for guidance.

Curtin workers have access to the Standard through Curtin Library’s TechStreet account. Search for ‘2243.3:2022’ to get the Standard. Your downloaded copy of the Standard will self-erase after a couple of days, and you’ll need to go back to TechStreet to get another copy each time you need it.
