North Seattle Community College Chemical Hygiene Plan.
North Seattle Community Coll., WA.
The goal of the Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP), created by North Seattle Community College, is to provide an environment that protects and promotes health and safety and complies with health and safety laws. The CHP focuses especially on the laboratory workplace (biology and chemistry), as many hazardous materials can be found there. Employee protection measures must be taken, and a Chemical Hygiene Officer must provide training to laboratory workers in order to meet requirements of the Laboratory Safety Standard. Details of the Laboratory Safety Standard are listed. Responsibilities of personnel (such as Chemical Hygiene Administrator and Laboratory Employee) are discussed, along with general rules of laboratory operation (i.e., material handling, waste management, glassware, and inspections). Exposure control measures (i.e., laboratory design and employee exposure protection), employee information and training (training records and emergency procedures), exposure monitoring and medical attention (physician's reports and medical exams), and standard operating procedures (i.e., hazardous materials and distillation) are all described in detail.
