The following chapters provide the foundation for the development of an OHSP at institutions engaged in the care and use of nonhuman primates. The Committee encourages program managers to utilize other resources as well, in particular the 1997 NRC document Occupational Health and Safety in the Care and Use of Research Animals and the 1999 CDC Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories. The actual development and implementation of an OHSP must be adapted to the individual needs and functions of an organization. One common theme is that effective communication of hazards, risks, and safety measures to all employees is a vital element in the success of any program.
