Chapter 58: Laboratory Safety

The purpose of this program is to protect workers from the hazards associated with handling and using hazardous materials in laboratories.

It covers chemical hygiene requirements for work with chemicals in SLAC research laboratories. (General requirements for chemical safety are covered separately in Chapter 53, "Chemical Safety".)

It applies to workers (as laboratory workers), supervisors, principal investigators and laboratory managers, building managers, ESH coordinators, and the laboratory safety program manager/chemical hygiene officer.

This chapter satisfies requirements for a written chemical hygiene plan (8 CCR 5191).
