The University of Iowa is committed to providing its employees, students and visitors with an environment where the laboratory use of hazardous chemicals is done safely. Attainment of this goal requires the cooperation and commitment of all persons involved.

This generic Chemical Hygiene Plan was written to fulfill uniform requirements applicable to most University labs. The generic CHP must have location specific information, and possibly amendments, added to complete it for the department and lab locations it will apply to. Additional chemical hygiene resources are available at The EHS Chemical Safety site.

This generic Chemical Hygiene Plan supersedes previous University generic chemical hygiene plans.
