Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP)

The Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP) includes procedures designed to protect staff and students from health hazards associated with hazardous chemicals and/or lab procedures and has been designed to meet or exceed current regulatory standards.

Chemical risks will not be underestimated and appropriate measures will be taken by PCC to minimize chemical exposure. Staff and students must take responsibility for their laboratory safety and the CHP has been designed to outline the procedures to achieve a safe work environment. Supervisors/Deans will make sure that all individuals in laboratories have access to all pertinent information to perform their work duties safely. Staff and students are encouraged to discuss any safety concerns with their supervisor or instructor.

The CHP is reviewed annually by the Chemical Hygiene Committees and Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) to ensure that it reflects current regulatory standards and PCC procedures.

Chemical Hygiene Committees

The PCC Chemical Hygiene Committee meets twice a year to discuss lab safety concerns district-wide as well as specific lab safety hazards for each Program. The Committee is comprised of Deans, Instructors, ISTs, and EH&S.
