About BioRisk Reduction

Statement of Purpose

Our aim is to decrease the risk of infectious disease transmission within communities due to known and unknown vulnerabilities.

Our advice is always honest, ethical, scientifically justified, and responsible, while accounting for the clients' needs to maintain operations.

We understand that each client has unique needs and requires creative controls to maintain operations as desired while maintaining a safe environment. This includes but is not limited to facilities, PPE, leadership training, and protocol/behavioral-based safety. We not only build increased environmental infectious disease safety but also teach and empower our clients to keep improving safety. This is achieved through our collaborative client-consumer process and our custom education and training offerings.
