Microbiological safety cabinets) protect at source and therefore everyone who enters that area is protected equally. In addition, if the PPE is worn or used incorrectly or is poorly maintained, then the individual protection factor accorded to the worker will be reduced by an unknown amount. Before a decision is made to use PPE for protection during a procedure, the following aspects should be addressed during the risk assessment process: • • • • • • Eliminate the hazard – is there an alternative way of doing what is required?

Infectious substances are defined as substances that are known or are reasonably expected to contain pathogens. Pathogens are defined as microorganisms (including bacteria, viruses, rickettsiae, parasites, and fungi) and other agents such as prions that can cause disease in humans or animals. Cultures. Cultures are the result of a process by which pathogens are intentionally propagated. Patient specimens. Patient specimens are human or animal materials, collected directly from humans or animals, including, but not limited to, excreta, secreta, blood and its components, tissue and tissue fluid swabs, and body parts being transported for purposes such as research, diagnosis, investigational activities, disease treatment, and prevention.
