Chemical Safety

University of Houston is committed to providing a healthy and safe work environment for the campus community, where hazardous chemicals are used in a wide variety of operations and activities. The Chemical Safety Program in EHLS’s efforts are directed at assisting the University in identifying chemical safety hazards and controlling such hazards through materials substitution, the application of engineering and administrative controls, the use of personal protective equipment, and laboratory surveys and training programs.

Please feel free to contact us at any time if you need assistance or to report any chemical safety concerns which you may have.

Forms and Manuals

As there is significant overlap within the functional areas of EHLS, it is best to locate a form through the EHLS Forms page, or manual through the EHLS Manuals page. This insures that any and all necessary forms are easily available in one place. The manuals page also includes the laboratory construction and guidelines document to insure that any issues with laboratory construction are corrected in the design phase.
