The Public Health Agency of Canada has published Pathogen Safety Data Sheets. Similar to Chemical Safety Data sheets, these documents offer a quick summary of pathogen hazards, PPE to use, other precautions and a regulatory summary. The USA's Center for Disease Control (CDC) also offers fact sheets and laboratory and health information on various pathogens of concern.
