PURDUE CHEMICAL HYGIENE PLANAWARENESS CERTIFICATIONFor CHP of:Professor, building, roomsThe Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that laboratoryemployees be made aware of the Chemical Hygiene Plan at their place of employment (29CFR 1910.1450).The Purdue University Chemical Hygiene Plan and Hazardous Materials Safety Manualserves as the written Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP) for laboratories using chemicals atPurdue University. The CHP is a regular, continuing effort, not a standby or short termactivity. Departments, divisions, sections, or other work units engaged in laboratory workwhose hazards are not sufficiently covered in this written manual must customize it byadding their own sections as appropriate (e.g. standard operating procedures, emergencyprocedures, identifying activities requiring prior approval). See Appendix K.After reading the "Purdue Chemical Hygiene Plan and Hazardous Material Safety Manual,"complete and return a copy of this form to your supervisor or to your department’s SafetyCommittee Chair. By signing below you acknowledge that you are aware of the ChemicalHygiene Plan and the policies and procedures applicable to the OSHA standard (29 CFR1910.1450). Your supervisor will provide additional information and training as appropriate.Please type or print legibly.Name:Work Phone:Student or staff ID number:Email address:Department:Job Classification (if employee):Building:Room:Supervisor, instructor, or P. I. for your work area:Signature:Date:Completed CHP Awareness Certifications are to be filed in a central administrativelocation within the staff member’s department. These and all safety training recordsshould be organized in a way that allows original records to be retrieved quickly andefficiently on request by an OSHA inspector or a REM staff member, and to beretrieved for a single staff member or for an entire work group (identified bysupervisor).The official versions of all REM forms and documents are the versions at the REM website.

PURDUE UNIVERSITYPOLICY STATEMENTIt is the policy of Purdue University to take every reasonable precaution to provide awork environment that is free from recognized hazards for its employees inaccordance with the General Duty clause of the OSHA Act (Public Law 91-596,Section 5(a)(l)). Purdue University is also required by the OSHA LaboratoryStandard to ensure that the necessary work practices, procedures and policies areimplemented to protect laboratory employees from all potentially hazardouschemicals in use in their work area.Purdue University has established the Chemical Management Committee with theresponsibility to promote safe and proper chemical management at all PurdueUniversity Campuses and related facilities. The Charter of the University ChemicalManagement Committee is reprinted in Appendix A of this document.The official versions of all REM forms and documents are the versions at the REM website.

PART ITHE OSHA LABORATORY STANDARDANDTHE PURDUE CHEMICAL HYGIENE PLAN
THE OSHA LABORATORY STANDARDThe basis for this standard (29 CFR 1910.1450) is a determination by the Occupational Safetyand Health Administration (OSHA), after careful review of the complete rule-making record, thatlaboratories typically differ from industrial operations in their use and handling of hazardouschemicals and that a different approach than that found in OSHA's substance specific healthstandards is warranted to protect workers. The final standard applies to all laboratories that usehazardous chemicals in accordance with the definitions of laboratory use and laboratory scaleprovided in the standard. Generally, where this standard applies it supersedes the provisions ofall other standards in 29 CFR, part 1910, subpart Z, except in specific instances identified bythis standard. For laboratories covered by this standard, the obligation to maintain employeeexposures at or below the permissible exposure limits (PELs) specified in 29 CFR, part 1910,subpart Z is retained. However, the manner in which this obligation is achieved will bedetermined by each employer through the formulation and implementation of a ChemicalHygiene Plan (CHP). The CHP must include the necessary work practices, procedures andpolicies to ensure that employees are protected from all potentially hazardous chemicals usedor stored in their work area. Hazardous chemicals as defined by the final standard include notonly chemicals regulated in 29 CFR part 1910, subpart Z, but also any chemical meeting thedefinition of hazardous chemical with respect to health hazards as defined in OSHA's HazardCommunication Standard, 29 CFR 1910.1200(c).Among other requirements, the final standard provides for employee training and information,medical consultation and examination, hazard identification, respirator use and record keeping.To the extent possible, the standard allows a large measure of flexibility in compliance methods.Effective Date: May 1, 1990. Compliance Date: Employers shall have completed anappropriate Chemical Hygiene Plan and commenced carrying out its provisions by January 31,1991.EMPLOYEE RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIESEmployees have the right to be informed about the known physical and health hazards of thechemical substances in their work areas and to be properly trained to work safely with thesesubstances.Employees have the right to file a complaint with IOSHA if they feel they are being exposed tounsafe or unhealthy work conditions. Employees cannot be discharged, suspended, orotherwise discriminated against by their employer because of filing a complaint, or exercisingtheir rights under the law.Employees have the responsibility to attend training seminars on the Laboratory Standard andChemical Hygiene Plan and to stay informed about the chemicals used in their work areas.They have the responsibility to use safe work practices and protective equipment required forsafe performance of their job. Finally they have the responsibility to inform their supervisors ofaccidents and conditions or work practices they believe to be a hazard to their health or to thehealth of others.HAZARDOUS CHEMICALSThe Laboratory Standard defines a hazardous chemical as any element, chemical compound,or mixture of elements and/or compounds which is a physical or health hazard.The official versions of all REM forms and documents are the versions at the REM website. Always check there -- being atwww.purdue.edu/REM -- to make sure that you have the official version of any form or other document.2
A chemical is a physical hazard if there is scientifically valid evidence that it is a flammable, acombustible liquid, a compressed gas, an explosive, an organic peroxide, an oxidizer,pyrophoric, unstable material (reactive), or water-reactive.A chemical is a health hazard if there is statistically significant evidence based on at least onestudy conducted in accordance with established scientific principles that acute or chronic healtheffects may occur in exposed employees. Included are: carcinogensreproductive toxinssensitizersneurotoxins (nerve)hepatotoxins (liver)agents that act on thehematopoietic system (blood) irritantscorrosivesradioactive materialbiohazardsnephrotoxins (kidney)agents that damage the lungs,skin, eyes, or mucousmembranesSee Appendix I, Glossary, for definitions of these terms.In most cases, the label will indicate if the chemical is hazardous. Look for key words likecaution, hazardous, toxic, dangerous, corrosive, irritant, carcinogen, etc. Old containersof hazardous chemicals (before 1985) may not contain hazard warnings.If you are not sure a chemical you are using is hazardous, review the Material Safety DataSheet (MSDS) or contact your supervisor, instructor, or the Department of Radiological andEnvironmental Management (REM).Designated areas must be established and posted for work with certain chemicals andmixtures (Appendix G), which include select carcinogens, reproductive toxins, and/orsubstances which have a high degree of acute toxicity. A designated area may be the entirelaboratory, an area of a laboratory or a device such as a laboratory hood. Designated areastickers are available from REM.MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEETS (MSDSs)A Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) is a document containing chemical hazard and safehandling information prepared in accordance with the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard.A sample MSDS is included at the e

The following is FIUs chemical hygiene plan in conformance with these requirements. This Chemical Hygiene Plan applies to all employees and students engaged in laboratory use of hazardous substances, where there is the potential for employee exposure to hazardous materials. It does not apply to those working outside the laboratory setting.
