This webinar will help you understand the key principles of chemical and safety practices within a laboratory environment. It will provide tools to help you build your Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP) and ensure compliance with OSHA regulations.

Why Should You Attend:

Chemical handling, particularly in the lab environment, requires an assessment and upfront planning to keep workers safe. Additionally, labs are faced with an ever-expanding list of Federal, State and local safety regulations. Anyone that is not fully aware of these regulations is in danger of the hefty fines that can come with non-compliance.

Having a well-written Chemical Hygiene Plan will not only satisfy OSHA requirements for labs, it will provide you with the framework and guidelines necessary to ensure safe work practices are in place and are followed.

This webinar will present some simple, effective, and inexpensive steps that you can take to improve compliance and reduce the likelihood of fines, and will provide you with tools you can use right now to build your Chemical Hygiene Plan. This course covers the basic principles of chemical and physical safety practices within a laboratory environment, and is appropriate for workers new to chemical laboratory work and as a refresher for those returning to laboratory work or who want to brush up on their skills and knowledge.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion, participants should be able to:

  • Recognize the definitions relating to OSHA’s requirements for chemical hygiene plans
  • Identify OSHA-required components of a chemical hygiene plan
  • Identify OSHA’s requirements for training and information given to employees
  • Recognize OSHA’s requirements for hazard identification

Areas Covered in the Seminar:

  • How to make certain that you’re in compliance and who in your workplace is covered.
  • What your CHP must include, and how to create effective standard operating procedures.
  • The specific control measures—from engineering to PPE—you must include in your CHP.
  • Where to source information on chemicals, and how to be sure your laboratory library of Safety Data Sheets is complete and current.
  • How to designate a Chemical Hygiene Officer and assign responsibilities for routinely reviewing the CHP to make needed modifications.
  • How to provide site-wide annual training for employees and create the complete training documentation needed during OSHA inspections.
  • The particular precautions you must take when dealing with toxic substances, carcinogens, and other hazardous chemicals in the workplace.
  • What you must know about OSHA's revised Hazard Communication Standard (under the Globally Harmonized Standard - GHS) and how it impacts your daily operations.
  • The OSHA Lab Standard (1910.1450) and how it affects you.
