In this course, you will learn about the requirements employers must meet to ensure a safe laboratory environment for their employees. It also walks you through creating an effective and comprehensive Chemical Hygiene Plan including basic components, general laboratory safety practices, facility and operation safety rules, chemical hazard identification, and other general safety topics that relate to laboratories.
OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration) has tailored a standard for occupational exposure to hazardous chemicals in laboratories referred to as the Laboratory Standard which is found in Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations Part 1910, Subpart Z, Section 1450 (29CFR 1910.1450). Under this standard all operations that meet the OSHA definition of a laboratory are subject to the Laboratory Standard.
