Chemical Hygiene Plans

Chemical Hygiene Plans: Who Needs Them and Why?

Laboratories working with hazardous chemicals are required to develop a Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP) per OSHA’s Occupational Exposure to Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratories standard (29 CFR 1910.1450), known as the Laboratory standard. A Chemical Hygiene Plan is a written plan outlining policies, procedures, and responsibilities required to protect laboratory workers from being harmed by hazardous chemicals. Your CHP should be available to all employees engaged in laboratory use of hazardous chemicals.
