Environmental Health & Safety
- For all roles
The Chemical Hygiene Program has been designed to help University students, faculty, and staff to use hazardous chemicals safely and in a manner that complies with prevailing state and federal regulations and protocols. The purpose of the University Chemical Hygiene Program, and specifically the Chemical Hygiene Plan, is to describe proper practices, procedures, equipment, and facilities that function together to help ensure that all affected individuals are protected from the effects of hazardous chemicals in their work area. Each affected department or unit will appoint a chemical-hygiene officer who is responsible for developing and updating department or unit-specific aspects of the Chemical Hygiene Plan, and for the general implementation and monitoring of the total University plan within their area of responsibility.
