OSHA (29CFR1910.1450) and related state regulations require almost all schools to have a chemical hygiene officer and a chemical hygiene plan. Here is one of the best models available today from the Laboratory Safety Institute.
The plan covers all the OSHA required areas:
- Standard Operating Procedures
- Control Measures and Implementation
- Fume Hood and Emergency Equipment
- Training and Information
- Circumstances Requiring Prior Approval
- Medical Consultation and Examination
- Responsibilities for Chemical Hygiene
- Particularly Hazardous Substances
This downloadable document comes formatted as a Word Doc version. You may use it to customize your plan according to your school’s policies and procedures.
