Chemical Guidelines & SOP Templates

Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and Guidelines describe safe handling procedures for various chemical hazard classes and some commonly-used chemicals. Chemicals identified as Particularly Hazardous Substances require a customized, laboratory-specific SOP. Reference: UH Chemical Hygiene Plan, Chapter 5. 

For these chemicals, 

  • Follow these SOP Creation Guidelines (coming soon) and
  • Use this SOP template (or your own format) to create your own lab-specific SOPs. * Last revised 10JUN2020. *

Customized SOPs may reference appropriate chemical safety guidelines linked below.
