Registration Information


The Chemical Hygiene Plan has always been an important safety tool for all researchers, but with incidents and with Lab Safety coming under scrutiny from accidents at other universities, the CHP has taken a much more prominent role within Lab Safety’s realm.

To meet this increased focus on chemical safety compliance, EH&S Lab Safety developed two on-line courses explaining the CHP, and how it needs to be implemented here at UF. The first explains the CHP and how it pertains to the PI’s. It provides guidance in the CHP’s components and how it is made lab specific. The second course is intended for anyone (PI, Lab Manger, etc.) who is responsible for the development and implementation of the CHP.  It goes into detail on how to complete the forms for the Chemical Inventory, SOPs, PPE determination and the training documentation.




Although the on-line courses are designed to help all PIs and lab staff, we ask that if there are any concerns or questions, please contact Lab Safety at 392-1591 or
