Chemical Safety Fact Sheets
The following fact sheets have been prepared by the WSU Office of Environmental Health and Safety with the goal of providing critical information on key research safety topics. Please print and review relevant fact sheets, and implement the recommended safety practices within your laboratory.
OEHS maintains this site to enhance campus safety information sharing. This is a service that is continually under development. We will make every effort to keep this site current and to correct errors brought to our attention.
Additionally, these fact sheets can help research groups with the development of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for chemical or procedure specific activities being performed in the laboratory.
Please contact OEHS if you have any questions, or suggestions for the development of new fact sheets.
