UNE Safety Manual
The UNE Safety Manual (PDF) is the most inclusive resource for all UNE safety policies and forms. This manual is updated on an annual basis or as needed as programs and regulations change. If you need guidance on an Environmental Health and Safety policy or procedure, this is a great starting place. If you need to report an issue with the safety manual or would like to see something added, please feel free to contact EHS to address your concerns.
UNE Chemical Hygiene Plan
The UNE Chemical Hygiene Plan (PDF)is an OSHA required document that all labs must have readily accessible. Per OSHA.gov: “OSHA’s Occupational Exposure to Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratories standard (29 CFR 1910.1450), referred to as the Laboratory standard, specifies the mandatory requirements of a Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP) to protect laboratory workers from harm due to hazardous chemicals. The CHP is a written program stating the policies, procedures, and responsibilities that protect workers from the health hazards associated with the hazardous chemicals used in that particular workplace.” The UNE Chemical Hygiene Plan is a template for all labs to use and add their SOP’s to as needed. Please print this plan, update the cover sheet to reflect your lab’s specific information, and have on hand in your lab area.
