Laboratory Safety Training: Chemical Hygiene Plans

Flammable Chemicals in Safety Cabinet_SMALL


The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, requires many laboratories in the United States to have chemical hygiene plans, or CHPs, to protect their employees from chemicals that can damage their health. These plans outline the laboratory’s procedures, equipment and work practices that are designed to protect employees from health hazards. By properly implementing and regularly updating your facility’s chemical hygiene plan, you can help reduce the risk of chemical-related injuries and illnesses in your laboratory.


Describe the basics of creating a Chemical Hygiene plan for your company which includes creating SOPs , performing training on the plans, documentation, having the correct Personal Protective equipment, Chemical labeling, and Permissible Exposure Limits (PEL).
