Abstract/ Summary

The University of Maine’s (UM) Department of Chemistry, in an effort to ensure that all of its employees and students working in laboratories have a reasonable expectation of safety, has put forward this Chemical Hygiene Plan. It is a guide to operating safely with chemicals and understanding your laboratory environment as well as instructions of what is to be done in an emergency. Each person working in a laboratory will be expected to follow the guidelines explained here but borrowed from The University of Maine System, state and federal governments.
