Chemical Hygiene Plan

The University has developed the Chemical Hygiene Plan to provide guidelines for prudent practices and procedures for the laboratory use of chemicals. The Chemical Hygiene Plan was written in response to the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) Occupational Exposures to Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratories (the OSHA Lab Standard).

The Chemical Hygiene Plan sets forth procedures, equipment, personal protective equipment and work practices that are capable of protecting employees from the health hazards presented by the hazardous chemicals used in the workplace. Copies of the Chemical Hygiene Plan are available in each laboratory or through the Office of Health and Safety.
