The Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens categorises four potential hazard groups:-
Hazard Group 1:
A biological agent unlikely to cause human disease.
Hazard Group 2:
A biological agent than can cause human disease and may be a hazard to employees; it is unlikely to spread to the community.
Hazard Group 3:
A biological agent than can cause severe human disease and presents a serious hazard to employees; it may present a risk of spreading to the community but there is usually an effective treatment.
Hazard Group 4:
A biological agent that can cause severe human disease and is a serious hazard to employees; it is likely to spread to the community and there is no effective treatment available.
