Three years after its creation, the PREVI returns to the PRBB to remind the equipment and preventive measures we need to take in the laboratory.

The Inter-Centre Commission for the Prevention of Occupational Risks of the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (CIPRL-PRBB), made up of prevention professionals from each of the Park’s research centers, is resuming the campaign: “Prevention is everyone’s responsibility. It starts with you!

Therefore, in the coming months, PREVI, the character created three years ago to accompany prevention messages, will remind research staff where and when to use personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect hands, eyes, ears, airways, face and body.

On a monthly basis, PREVI will provide advice on the use of a specific type of PPE through the TVs and billboards in the building, and on PRBB social media.

Remember: Prevention is everyone’s responsibility. It starts with you!

The CIPRL-PRBB commission is made up of: Sergi Jarque (Pompeu Fabra University), Sonia Alcázar García (Centre for Genomic Regulation), Samuel Espinal (Barcelona Institute for Global Health), Sandra Vial Mora (Hospital del Mar Medical Research Institute) , Alexandre Robert (European Molecular Biology Laboratory – Barcelona) and Lourdes Luque Ramírez (PRBB Consortium).

If you have any questions about safety and prevention, contact the person in charge of prevention at your center.
