In today's day and age it would take a book to list all of the

different biological hazards, their origin, consequences, affect on

life forms, in addition to the how's and whens. Nonetheless, here

are some biological groupings.

  • Bacteria
  • Micro Organisms
  • Viruses
  • Parasites
  • fungi

The above is only one group. The issues to be concerned with are as


  • Their ability to cause infection ( in otherwise health


  • The severity of the disease that may result
  • The risk that the infection will spread to the community
  • The availability of effective vaccines and treatment

I'm sure others who have more experience in this area can add on to

the above. Viper1
