What could be a biological hazard?
Biological hazards, also known as biohazards, refer to biological substances that pose a threat to the health of living organisms, primarily that of humans.
How would you differentiate the effect of physical hazard from biological hazard and chemical hazard?
What are the types of biological hazard should be of the greatest concern to food establishment managers?
why is food a biological hazard I believe you meant to say. When food spoils it usually b/c of bacteria. which is "biological" it becomes hazardous when "perishing" may cause food poisoning or severe gi disturbances even death in extreme cases. ie untreated food poisoning, elderly, immunocompromised etc.. food does not fall in the traditional biological hazard category- only under special circumstance, some of which listed above.

The standard unit of radiation related to biological hazard is known as sievert denoted by Sv. The smaller unit for the same is called rem (100 rem is 1 Sv). The difference between the unit of absorbed dose(Gray / rad) and Sv is that sievert also takes into account the biological effectiveness of the different types of radiation
