Chemical Hygiene Plan

The St. John’s University Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP) has been established as part of the overall Laboratory Safety Program in order to minimize the risk from laboratory use of hazardous chemicals. The purpose of this CHP is to define work practices and procedures to help ensure that faculty, students, staff and other employees are protected from the hazards associated with the handling, storage, and use of hazardous chemicals in the laboratories.  This Plan addresses the requirements of St. John's University policy and the OSHA Laboratory Standard.
