All laboratories which use chemicals are subject to the OSHA standard titled: Occupational Exposure to Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratories; commonly known as the "Laboratory Safety Standard".
The major requirement of the Lab Standard is to develop a written, Lab-specific Chemical Hygiene Plan which addresses the policies, Standard Operating Procedures, etc. that ensure that employees are protected from harm due to chemicals. Directions and forms for creating a lab-specific CHP are in Sec. I.
