German Federal Ministry of Economics, Committee on Biological Agents: Biological Agents in Healthcare and Welfare Facilities (TRBA 250)


Employees in the health care and welfare sector and in veterinary medicine do not normally perform particularly dangerous work. However, the specific activities during which they come into contact with biological agents demand specific protective measures of a structural/technical, organisational or personal nature in order to reduce the risks of infection. The Biological Agents Ordinance requires that protective measures be established in a certain protection level, depending on:

  • the activity,
  • the risk group of the pathogen,
  • the duration and nature of the exposure and
  • the transmission routes.
