What our Clients are Saying...
Sean Kaufman has provided exemplary, behavioral-based training for myself and other biosafety professionals in our organization on several occasions. He uses non-traditional methods to challenge students to consider both the client needs and the biosafety requirements for working safely in the laboratory. Sean is an expert in behavioral modification and in biosafety and emergency response procedures required in high containment facilities. He embraces experiential and thought-provoking training that students will retain and use in their everyday work. He demonstrates a high level of integrity that inspires students to do their best in their profession. I highly recommend Sean for behavioral-based training - he is definitely a leader that is dedicated to improving the work environment, client service and personnel interaction to meet the needs of both biosafety professionals and researchers.

I highly recommend Sean for biosafety training. In one word, Sean is AWESOME! I've had the pleasure of hosting Sean for biosafety training at UTHSC where he conducted 3 full days of training for two groups of technicians, researchers, and veterinarians. I also invited Sean as the featured speaker for the 2011 ACLAM forum where, again, he did a superb job. Sean forces you to think out of the box, and very effectively integrates human behavior into critical training. He is the most effective trainer that I've ever had the pleasure of working with.

Sean Kaufman is a highly talented trainer with a deep knowledge of high-containment laboratories and the behavior-based human skills needed to operate them safely, efficiently, and effectively. His work with the University of Florida’s Emerging Pathogens Institute when it launched its BSL-3 labs was instrumental in it quickly obtaining USDA/CDC start-up approval. Sean keenly understands that behavior based training is crucial to successfully running high containment labs and he adeptly conducts his training sessions towards this end. If your institution is getting into the high containment business, or looking for help given the new Tier 1 regulations, I highly recommend you contact Sean for coaching and guidance.

Sean had a huge impact on our Serious Communicable Disease Unit at Emory. He provided us with the expertise and guidance that led our team to deliver excellent and effective care in a high-risk health care environment. He taught us protocols and instilled habits in us that allowed us to safely care for patients who had been diagnosed with the Ebola Virus Disease. Not only did he provide us with quality excellent instruction and quality control measures, but Sean also gave us moral support and was the leader of our team. His charismatic personality was engaging and reassuring during the stressful time when we were first training to take care of Ebola patients. He created a culture of family within our unit, where everyone constantly performed at their best in order to look out for the entire team’s well-being. I am grateful for the leadership, passion, and knowledge that Sean brought to our team at Emory."
