Laboratory Chemical Standards : The Complete Osha Compliance Guide
In January 1990, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration issued a new standard, popularly called the Laboratory Standard, governing occupational exposures to hazardous chemicals in laboratories. The standard emphasizes administrative controls to present workers from being exposed to hazardous substances. This manual (loose-leaf in a vinyl-clad, three-ring binder) tells employers whose business includes a laboratory how to comply with the standard. It describes the standard in detail and amplifies it with expert opinion, including guidance from OSHA officials. It describes each component that OSHA requires, and suggests methods for implementing each of these elements. The checklist, a compilation of good laboratory practices used by major research institutions, covers all elements of a chemical hygiene plan. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
