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.
