Chemical Hygiene Plans

Laboratories that use hazardous chemicals are subject to 29 Code of Federal Regulations 1910.1450, Occupational Exposure to Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratories, commonly known as the “Laboratory Safety Standard.” The major requirement of the Laboratory Safety Standard is to develop a written, lab-specific Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP) that provides the policies, and Standard Operating Procedures to ensure that employees are protected from hazards associated with chemicals.

EH&E can develop a comprehensive and effective CHP specific to your facility and operations, or we can help you update an existing plan. The CHP will serve as a guide for handling hazardous chemicals in the laboratory and establish basic principles for laboratory procedures, equipment and work practices. The plan will also describe the safeguards for protecting employees from chemical hazards in the laboratory environment. When properly implemented, the CHP can help minimize potential occupational exposure to hazardous chemicals, infectious microorganisms, and/or other potentially infectious materials. EH&E can also help you with implementation of the CHP through establishing policies and procedures that ensure compliance with this regulation.
