To establish work practices and control measures for laboratory research activities using carcinogens, reproductive toxins, and acutely toxic chemicals.
The OSHA Laboratory Standard (29 CFR 1910.1450) requires employers to establish work procedures and control measures for employees performing laboratory work with select carcinogens, reproductive toxins, and substances with a high degree of acute toxicity. Chemicals meeting the criteria are referred to as particularly hazardous substances.
REHS has identified 35 common chemicals that meet the definition of particularly hazardous substances, and has established control measures to protect laboratory workers and comply with the provisions of the Laboratory Standard.
