EHS 101 | Lab Safety Overview


Let’s talk about lab safety overview training. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration or OSHA recognizing the unique characteristics of the laboratory workplace has tailored a standard for occupational exposure to hazardous chemicals in laboratories.

This standard is often referred to as the laboratory standard. Under this standard, a laboratory is required to produce a chemical hygiene plan which addresses the specific hazards found in its location and the lab’s approach to working with them. Laboratory hazards are addressed in specific standards for general industry.

Some of those standards are located in the 1910 subpart C Toxic and Hazardous Substances 1910 10 Zero Air Contaminants table Z One limits for Air Contaminants 19 10 14. 50 occupational exposure to hazardous chemicals in laboratories. Appendix A, National Research Council recommendations concerning chemical hygiene in laboratories. Appendix B, References.
