Chemical Hygiene

UC Irvine has a comprehensive Chemical Hygiene Plan that can be accessed here.  For the lab, please note a few important points:

  • Don’t forget to wear your Personal Protection Equipment (lab coats/splash goggles) when handling hazardous materials.
  • Chemicals (such as phantom dyes) are to be stored in the biochem lab – please don’t store them in the DOSI lab.
  • Safety Data Sheets (SDS) lists are maintained in the Biochem Lab.  Before using the chemical, please consult the SDS so that you know the hazards (if any).  If you purchase new chemicals, you need to grab that SDS and put it in the binder.


UC Irvine Emergency Procedures

Each room should have a copy of this posted near the door – look for the blue anteater.  A copy of the document is available at this site.
