The second, we’ve already mentioned. Known as the “OSHA Lab Standard,” 29CFR1910.1450 requires laboratories to identify hazards, determine employee exposures, and develop a (CHP) including standard operating procedures. The “lab standard” applies to the laboratory use of chemicals and mandates written Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) addressing the particular hazards and precautions required for safe use. This goes hand in hand with experimental design and planning. Both standards require providing material safety data sheets and employee training.

Welcome to the main page for the 9th biennial conference and exposition for the National Hydrologic Warning Council. Hydrologic disasters continue to be headline news across the world. It is the mission of the NHWC and its members to provide timely, quality hydrologic information for the protection of life, property, and the environment. If your job or passion is related to the warning of hydrologic hazards, then this conference is for you.
For the exam, you'll need to be able to recognise some of the hazard symbols used in chemistry and to explain what they mean. You may also be asked to give examples of chemicals that should be labelled with a particular hazard symbol, or suggest a suitable hazard symbol for a particular chemical.

An important first step in protecting worker health and safety is recognizing workplace hazards. Most hazards encountered fall into three main categories: chemical, biological, or physical. Cleaning agents and disinfectants, drugs, anesthetic gases, solvents, paints, and compressed gases are examples of chemical hazards. Potential exposures to chemical hazards can occur both during use and with poor storage.
Laboratory Hazards and Risks | Lab Manager
Biological hazards include potential exposures to allergens, infectious zoonotics (animal diseases transmissible to humans), and experimental agents such as viral vectors. Allergens, ubiquitous in animal research facilities, are one of the most important health hazards, yet they are frequently overlooked.

The final category contains the associated with research facilities. The most obvious are slips and falls from working in wet locations and the ergonomic hazards of lifting, pushing, pulling, and repetitive tasks. Other physical hazards often unnoticed are electrical, mechanical, acoustic, or thermal in nature. Ignoring these can have potentially serious consequences.

The use of chemicals in research laboratories is inevitable, and the potential for harm or injury could be significant if they are misused or mishandled. OSHA has developed two important standards to help mitigate these potential problems. The first is the Hazard Communication standard (29CFR1910.1200) that deals with requirements for employers to inform and train employees on non-laboratory use of chemicals.2 This would apply to things in the lab such as pump oil, Chromerge, or liquid nitrogen used in dewars. Although these chemicals are found in the lab, their use does not meet the criteria for laboratory use.
