For the purposes of chemical safety and management, Departmental Chemical Hygiene Plans are a detailed, written set of procedures that explains how to utilize and manage hazardous chemicals, processes, and procedures to minimize health and safety concerns. The development and use of DCHPs are integral parts of an effective Chemical Hygiene Plan. Please visit the Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety page to access a DCHP Template.
