Excerpt

The Committee on Occupational Health and Safety in the Care and Use of Nonhuman Primates was appointed by the National Research Council (NRC) in response to requests from the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Food and Drug Administration to address the risks associated with occupational exposure to nonhuman primates and suggest practical and efficacious ways of minimizing these risks. Specifically, the committee was asked to: 1. Identify hazards associated with using nonhuman primates in research. 2. Assess the degree of risk of these hazards. 3. Suggest options for managing the risks including engineering controls, personal protective equipment, and worker training. 4. Outline the institutional management of workers after a suspected occupational exposure. 5. Provide sample illustrative occupational health and safety plans for personnel working in large and small nonhuman-primate facilities.
