Laboratory Safety Manual Overview

Washington State University’s Laboratory Safety Manual is a tool to assist responsible parties with developing their laboratory specific Chemical Hygiene Plan and related laboratory safety programs. Implementation of the Laboratory Safety Manual/Chemical Hygiene Plan is a critical element in achieving a safe and healthful laboratory environment.

WSU’s Laboratory Safety Manual coupled with the Chemical Hygiene Plan completed by each laboratory establishes laboratory specific policies and procedures.  A Laboratory Safety Manual/Chemical Hygiene Plan Guide provides additional information for developing and implementing a plan.
