Regulated Chemicals

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have placed emphasis on protecting employees from harmful exposure to a number of toxic chemicals and known or suspected carcinogens. These chemicals are listed below:

The EHS office must be made aware is your laboratory uses any of these chemicals and what frequency laboratory employees are possibly exposed. In order to fulfill this requirement each laboratory member must complete the Regulated Chemicals Use Questionnaire.

Also, users of these chemicals must be made aware of the hazards associated with their use and what safety precautions must be taken. EHS has provided written programs for the most commonly used regulated chemicals. These programs provide the OSHA regulation which applies to the chemical and Case requirements for the proper use.
