Industrial Hygienists may be called upon to provide assistance in the area of bioterrorism.

There are a number of organizations that have guidance on their websites regarding the biohazards of anthrax, and other agents. Here is a brief list of some useful sources:

Federal Bureau of Investigation

Center for Disease Control – U. S. Government

Office of Homeland Security information

U.S. Postal Service, Safety and Security of Mail
