HSE EH76 – Control of Laboratory Animal Allergy
This HSE guidance note draws attention to health risks from exposure to laboratory animal allergens.
It advises employers and managers of animal facilities on the precautions needed to prevent or adequately control exposure, as required by the CoSHH Regulations 2002. It also deals with duties under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, including the need to co-operate and co-ordinate where different employers share a workplace.
It does not deal with other health and safety issues relating to work with laboratory animals, for example management of infection risks and risk of injury from working with primates and farm animals.
