Working Safely with Animals: Occupational Health and Safety for Staff with Substantial Contact with mice, rats, hamsters and other rodents

http://www.iacuc.ucsf.edu/Safe/awOhsMRHR.asp

The major health risk to individuals working with rodents is the development of an allergy. Conditioned, colony-born rodents are generally docile, but may occasionally inflict injury such as a bite or scratch. Staff assigned to rodent areas should be trained in handling techniques and protective clothing requirements prior to beginning hands-on work.
