Chemical Hygiene Plan and Hazardous Materials Safety Manual

Laboratory Specific Plan

This is the Chemical Hygiene Plan specific to the following areas:

Building(s):

Wetherill

Room Number(s):

441, 441A, 465, 473

Principal Investigator (Supervisor):

Jean Chmielewski

Department of Chemistry

Department:

Revised (Must be reviewed at least annually.):

October 9, 2014

PI Signature:

Important Telephone Numbers:

1. 911 for All Emergencies

2. (765) 49-48221 Purdue Police Department (Non-Emergency Line)

3. (765) 49-46919 Purdue Fire Department (Non-Emergency Line)

4. (765) 49-46371 Purdue REM (Do Not Use for an Emergency)

All laboratory chemical use areas must maintain a work-area specific Chemical Hygiene Plan which conforms to the requirements of the OSHA Occupational Exposure to Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratories (29 CFR 1910.1450). Purdue University laboratories may use this document as a starting point for creating their work area specific Chemical Hygiene Plan. Minimally, this cover page is to be edited for work area specificity (non-West Lafayette laboratories are to place their own emergency, fire, and police telephone numbers in the space above) and the Purdue Chemical Hygiene Plan Awareness Certification Form must be completed for all lab employees. This instruction and information box should remain. This model Chemical Hygiene Plan is the 2014 version; the most current version can be found on the Forms page at www.purdue.edu/rem.
