Chemical Hygiene Plan


The university’s Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP) was revised in early 2013 as a result of a U.S. Chemical Safety Board recommendation following its investigation into a 2010 incident in a TTU chemistry laboratory that left a graduate student seriously injured.

The recommendation also calls for a verification program to ensure that the safety provisions of the CHP are communicated, followed and enforced at all levels within the university.

To meet the verification recommendation, online training has been developed by the Institutional Laboratory Safety Committee and EH&S. Deadlines to complete the training module are:


  • Aug. 31 for current faculty, staff and students
  • Oct. 1 of first year for anyone joining the university after Aug. 2013
