Module 2 - Controlling the Risk of Exposure to Infectious Agents (22 minutes) helps you decide what levels of control are necessary and helps inform on the general Risk Assessment and COSHH Assessment procedures.
Module 3 - Safe Working with Infectious Agents (7 minutes) helps inform you about the classification and definition of the hazard groups of pathogens you may be working with and how to reduce the exposure from them.
