·      From human error, most commonly.

·      A mechanical failure, electrical outage, fire, explosion or other accident at the lab.

·      A natural disaster such as a tornado or earthquake.

·      An enemy or terroist attack to the facility.

·      Spread into the community from an infected lab worker.

·      A malicious act by someone within the lab.

Information on vulnerability to tornados, seismic activity, or floods at the six possible NBAF sites is described in the Draft EIS, June 2008.

Keys words:  Human error,terrorism,accidents,natural disasters and bio-security.
