Biosecurity is one system and infection control is another. The first is broader, the second is more specific, but the practice of this is covered by concepts and behaviors in perfect symmetry between both.

In this sense, biosecurity and infection control are synonymous at several points. As a result of this symmetry, there is a Woson stance against Biosecurity and Infection Control, through its concepts and product line essentially oriented towards high risk environments such as clinics, clinics, laboratories and hospitals.

The set of preventive actions seeks to eliminate or mitigate risks related to activities of health treatment, production, education, research and technological development and provision of services within the dental, medical-hospital and laboratory environments. Biosecurity becomes crucial because these environments are considered places of high risk of contamination and, therefore, critical.
