The Chemical Safety course provides information on the safe use, handling, storage, and disposal of chemicals. The course will provide personnel with tools necessary to develop laboratory-specific procedures to protect both themselves and other workers in the laboratory. The course must be supplemented with laboratory specific safety training.

Topics covered in the course include:

  • Routes of exposure and entry
  • Chemical handling and storage
  • Chemical fume hoods
  • Chemical safety plans

All individuals working in laboratories are encouraged to take the Chemical Safety course.
