CHEMICAL HYGIENE AND SAFETY PLAN

____________________

 

45.4 Exceptions

The CHSP does not apply to the following:

·         Articles. An article is a manufactured item such as an O-ring or a steel rod that is formed to a specific shape and, when used under normal conditions, does not release more than very small quantities of a hazardous chemical and does not pose a physical hazard or health risk to employees. Items such as welding/brazing rods, which may produce metal fumes when used, are hazardous materials and do not meet this exception.

·         Biological hazards. These fall under the provisions of the Berkeley Lab's Biosafety Program (EH&S Manual Chapter 26).

Questions or comments may be addressed to the CHSP Manager.
