Employees performing “non-routine” tasks can be exposed to chemicals from unusual and unsuspected sources. These “non-routine” tasks may include, for example, periodic tank or boiler cleaning or the replacement of seals and gaskets. Written procedures shall be developed for every “non-routine” task by the supervisor of the employees who will perform the task. The information will include chemical hazards associated with the performance of the tasks and appropriate protective measures required to perform the task safely. The procedures shall be included (or specific location referenced) in the local copy of the Hazard Communication Plan. The Office of Research Safety will provide guidance and advice upon request.
* The following attachments, A-G, are tools to assist users with the implementation of the Hazard Communication Plan.
