Crack the Code: How do we know which procedures require a biological safety cabinet?

By Editor on 3/23/2015
In our laboratory we incubate blood culture bottles and if they are positive we perform a gram stain and then send the blood culture bottles out to a reference laboratory for identification. The gram stain is done on the bench; we don’t use a biological safety cabinet. Do we need to conduct a risk assessment to determine if this needs to be conducted in a BSC? A friend works in a lab in another city and they did a risk assessment in 1999.
