Chemical Hygiene Plan

University of California, Berkeley

Chemical Hygiene Plan - Online Component

Cal/OSHA (Title 8 CCR Sec. 5191) requires that all laboratories have a written Chemical Hygiene Plan as a fundamental chemical safety plan for the laboratory. This online resource is intended to supplement information in the hard copy Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP) Flipchart that includes laboratory specific information. To obtain a CHP Flip Chart for your laboratory contact EH&S at 642-3073 or ucbcho@berkeley.edu.

All UC Berkeley laboratory personnel who work with laboratory chemicals must know and follow the guidance outlined in this online CHP Component and the CHP Flipchart. Every laboratory worker is responsible for following safe work practices. Practicing safe chemical hygiene protects you and other lab members.

Additional requirements for this laboratory may also be found in the lab’s Radiation Use Authorization, Biological Use Authorization, Laser User Registration or if you use Toxic Gases or Controlled Substances.

Contact Ingrid Castro Rodriguez (ucbcho@berkeley.edu; (510) 642-3073, the Campus Chemical Hygiene Officer, with any questions regarding the CHP or any lab safety issues.
