Chemical Hygiene Plan and Lab Safety Training

The Class is Open and Required for: Faculty, Researchers, Staff, and Students that work with chemicals in labs/ studios/ shops.

This is required training for all laboratory personnel.

Do you work in a laboratory? Does your lab have chemicals? If so, you need to have written laboratory safety standard operating procedures (SOPs) for chemical use and compliance with the Wisconsin Dept. of Safety and Professional Services and the OSHA Laboratory Standard.

The UWM Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP) is on-line for you to adopt, revise to be lab-specific, and utilize in everyday applications.

This training will inform you of the Lab Standard and the Chemical Hygiene Plan elements, proper use of the CHP for safety in the lab, and how compliance is achieved. In addition, General lab safety information and procedures will be discussed.
