for, do you talk about biosecurity enough? Think for a minute and ask yourself What is
biosecurity and how does it affect you and the facility within which you work? Answer:
Biosecurity is the key to ensuring staff and animal welfare within your facility are protected by maintaining the correct containment levels
from any unwanted microorganisms. There are 3 containment levels to be aware of: 1.

So what does all this mean? To maintain the correct health status of a department and avoid the physical and mental effects of a biosecurity
breach you must ensure awareness to all team members through effective training and
monitoring of behavior. A breach to your biosecurity could result in animal welfare issues,
reputational damages, commercial losses and negative staff morale and motivation.
Biosecurity can be maintained and protected via the understanding and appreciation of the 3 pillars of biosecurity: Containment, Monitoring and Action. At Sychem we are
