  • Chemical Hazard Information

    This program is designed to promote a safe and healthy workplace by complying with the Cal/OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (California Code of Regulations, Title 8, Section 5194). This Hazard Communication Program has been developed to communicate information about hazards of substances employees use or come into contact with as part of their work. Components of the program include adequate labeling of hazardous substances in the workplace, providing information such as Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) for hazardous substances, and training employees on chemical hazards in the workplace.

  • Lab Waste

    The Lab Waste program includes procedures for hazard identification, hazardous waste accumulation, requesting removal of hazardous waste, and the disposal process. Also included is information on waste minimization activities. Hazardous waste generator training is provided by EHS annually.
