Biological safety, or bio-safety is the application of knowledge, techniques and equipment to prevent personal, laboratory and environmental exposure to potentially infectious agents or bio-hazards. The BCIT Biological Safety Program is centered on the prevention and control of human exposure to bio-hazards.

This is done by providing knowledge, awareness, and safety guidelines for work in Biological Laboratories in addition to exposure control plans for a variety of pathogens such as the influenza virus, West Nile virus, pigeon droppings and blood-borne pathogens.
