» Chemical Hygiene and Safety

Chemical Hygiene Plan and Safety is of paramount importance to the University.  To address these concerns, the University maintains a written Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP), designed to provide procedural guidelines for prudent work practices in the handling, storage, and use of chemicals in the laboratory and to protect laboratory workers from the potential health hazards of the chemicals they encounter in the workplace.  A wide range of Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s), some promulgated by EH&S and others by researchers supplement that Chemical Hygiene Plan.

Controlled Substances Plan

Research use of selected drugs and precursor chemicals are regulated by the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and California Department of Justice (CA-DOJ). To assist Chapman University personnel in compliance with these regulations and Chapman University policy, specific institutional requirements have been established for the management of controlled substances and precursor chemicals.  Researchers who need to use controlled substances in their work must be initially approved by Risk Management.  For more information, please email ehs@chapman.edu or call 714-516-7199.
