Biohazards include biological agents and toxins infectious to humans, animals, wildlife, plants such as parasites, viruses, bacteria, fungi, prions, and biologically-active materials such as toxins, allergens, and venoms. In addition to causing disease in living organisms, biohazards can cause significant damage to the environment.

Therefore, the mission of the CSU Pueblo Biosafety Committee is to ensure that all activities involving biohazardous materials are conducted in compliance with federal, state, and local regulations and applicable University policies. The Biosafety Committee will determine "Biorisk management," the effective management of risks posed by working with infectious agents and toxins in laboratories, and the range of practices and procedures to ensure biosecurity and ​biosafety and biocontainment of those infectious agents and toxins.

At CSU Pueblo, it is required to attain the approval of all projects involving recombinant DNA, synthetic nucleic acids, viral pathogens, bacterial pathogens, prions, biological toxins, human blood and tissues, non-human primate blood and tissues, clinical gene transfers, or clinical xenotransplantations.
