Chemical Laboratory S.O.P. Have you Considered all the Steps? The BIG Questions Our Safety Goal They are! Our Work and Exsperiments What Harm could they do? Think of some of larger risks What are some of the equipment Do you have a SOP Think Deep Chemicals Work Down from the most Hazardous Now think Hierarchy of Controls E Now think Hierarchy of Controls W Now think Hierarchy of Controls A Now think Hierarchy of Controls P Why we need SOP’s WHEN WHER HOW and By WHOM Do our Existing SOP’s apply Prudent Practices Do they note Physical Hazards Write that SOP Do they! Did you Prioritize Minimum Features in Everyone At a minimum, an SOP should include the following: 1. Minimum PPE required for your laboratory 2. Clear instructions for common laboratory procedures (e.g. storage of chemicals and glassware, handling of waste, etc.) 3. Safety Instructions for working with specialty equipment and chemicals (e.g. lasers, pyrophoric chemicals, oxidizers, compressed gases, etc.) 4. Basic operating instructions for laboratory equipment (fume hoods, pH meters, water bath and probe sonicators, chromatography/mass spectrometry systems, vacuum systems, etc.) 5. Safe and proper use of any specialized PPE used in your laboratory (dry boxes, glove boxes, respirators, etc.) 6. References and locations/websites for MSDSs, user manuals, etc. for ALL laboratory equipment, specialty PPE, and specialty chemicals used in your lab 7. Signatures of the laboratory manager and department head An SOP should serve as a quick reference guide for all established procedures in the laboratory. It should be a supplement to an MSDS for a specific chemical or a user/hardware manual for a specific piece of laboratory equipment. Do you have a quality control list Your Sheet Should Look like!
