By signing below I am agreeing that the information provided is true and accurate of the work currently performed
under my supervision as Principal Investigator or Instructor. I realize that any work utilizing biological materials,
even if such materials are considered exempt from NIH Guidelines, may still require registration with the UW
Oshkosh Institutional Biosafety Committee. I understand that I will also be required to complete biosafety training if
my research is registered with UW Oshkosh Institutional Biosafety Committee.

Risk Assessment Directions:
Investigators and/or instructors should complete the following questions based on their ongoing or future teaching or
research needs. Complete this risk assessment for each biological agent, toxin of biological origin, virus or
recombinant DNA project in your laboratory or classroom. Useful definitions can be found in Appendix B:
“Definitions”.
Submit completed form electronically to [email protected] Investigators should keep a copy in their records.

*Risk Group Information
See Appendix B: “Definitions” and the American Biological Safety Association (ABSA) website for a Risk Group
Database for Infectious Agents to determine the appropriate Risk Group Classification for your material(s). Additional
information on Risk Group Classification can be found in Appendix C: “Examples of Selected Microorganisms and
Associated Risk Group.”
** Modes of Infectious Transmission/Exposure
Select the potential routes of transmission for the materials or organisms you will be working with. Examples may
include:
 Inhalation
 Ingestion
 Skin absorption
 Contaminated blood/tissue/bodily fluids
 Fomites
 Vector transfer
III. Potential Risks
If risks exist for any of the biological materials listed on this form, please select all risks that apply and explain below:
Splash potential
Aerosol generation (cell culture, vortex, centrifuge, aerosol chamber, sonicator)
Needle stick/poke
Vector transfer

Appendix B: Definitions
Recombinant and synthetic nucleic acid molecules:
The NIH Guidelines define recombinant and synthetic nucleic acids as:
 Molecules that are a). constructed by joining nucleic acid molecules and b). that can replicate in a living cell
 Nucleic acid molecules that are chemically or by other means synthesized or amplified, including those that are
chemically or otherwise modified but can base pair with naturally occurring nucleic acid molecules
 Molecules that result from the replication of those described above.

Risk assessment is a methodology used to organize and analyze scientific information in order to estimate the
probability and severity of an adverse effect. The adoption of this methodology leads to the implementation of an
appropriate set of measures in order to provide maximal protection of human health and the environment. Risk
assessment has the following subsequent steps:
 Identification of biological hazards
 Determination of the class of risk of the genetically modified or pathogenic organism (Risk Group
Classification)
 Consideration of the type of activity in terms of probability of exposure to potential biological hazards
 Assignment of a class of risk to the contained use activity (Biosafety Level)
 Implementation of recommended containment level
* Risk Groups:
 Risk Group 1 (RG1): Agents are not associated with disease in healthy adult humans. Biosafety Level 1 (BSL-1)
containment will be used following “NIH Guidelines for the Research Involving Recombinant or Synthetic Nucleic Acid
Molecules” and Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories, 5th Edition
 Risk Group 2 (RG2): Agents are associated with human disease which is rarely serious and for which preventative or
therapeutic interventions are often available. Biosafety Level 2 (BSL-2) containment will be used following “NIH
Guidelines for the Research Involving Recombinant or Synthetic Nucleic Acid Molecules” and Biosafety in
Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories, 5th Edition
 Risk Group 3 (RG3): Agents are associated with serious or lethal human disease for which preventative or therapeutic
interventions may be available. Biosafety Level 3 (BSL-3) containment will be used following “NIH Guidelines for the
Research Involving Recombinant or Synthetic Nucleic Acid Molecules” and Biosafety in Microbiological and
Biomedical Laboratories, 5th Edition. UW Oshkosh does not currently have facilities to support BSL3 work
 Risk Group 4 (RG4): Agents are likely to cause serious or lethal human disease for which preventative or therapeutic
interventions are not usually available. Significant containment is required using Biosafety Level 4 (BSL-4) containment.
UW Oshkosh does not currently have facilities to support BSL4 work
