1993, the OSHA Laboratory Standard (29 CFR 1910.1450)
was established which requires hazard identification,
development of a Chemical Hygiene Plan, designation
of responsibility, employee information and training,
and record keeping requirements.
a Chemical Hygiene Guide, which applies to all faculty,
staff, and students who work in teaching and research
labs, to provide a model for the development and implementation
of a Chemical Hygiene Plan. This Chemical Hygiene Guide
must be modified to reflect the actual conditions and
work activities performed in each laboratory.
Please Note: RBHS units will continue using the Laboratory Safety Plan. REHS and the Rutgers University Laboratory Safety and Design Committee will combine and update the two plans.
