chemical hygiene plan
Chemical Hygiene Plan
  • Located in the Chemical Safety Program notebook housed at each school
  • CHP was developed to set forth policies, operating procedures, equipment, personal protective equipment and work policies that are capable of protecting staff and students from health hazards presented by hazardous chemicals used in science laboratories of DPS.
  • It is intended to meet the CHP requirements of 29 CFR 1910.1450 (Occupational Exposure to Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratories) and NC Board of Education Policy: Science Laboratory Safety (HSP-F-017).
  • The recommendations and requirements are taken from: OSHA, ANSI, NFPA, NCDOL, NC. General Statutes
  • Chapter 2: Personnel Responsibilities
  • Chapter 3: Science Laboratory Protective Equipment
  • Chapter 4: Chemical Procurement, Distribution, and Storage
  • Chapter 5: Emergency Procedures
  • Chapter 6: Chemical and Hazardous Materials Disposal
  • Chapter 7: Classroom Environment
  • Chapter 8: Assessments and Forms
  • Chapter 9: Appendices
