					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
