Chemical Hygiene - Biology Department

The purpose of the Biology Department’s Chemical Hygiene / Lab Safety Program is to provide information and recommendations for recognized work practices to protect students, faculty, staff and visitors from physical and health hazards associated with chemicals in a laboratory setting.  The State of Colorado has adopted the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Laboratory Standard which is applicable to students and employees of Fort Lewis College who work with chemicals.  This standard serves as the basis for this program.  The program will be reviewed on an annual basis.  You may review the program by downloading the linked document below:
