Chemical Hazard List

DCM and EHS have worked diligently to produce a ‘Chemical Hazards in DCM’ list comprising the chemical hazards on active animal use protocols. This list provides a quick reference to some of the safety precautions required for working with each chemical. 

Chemicals are listed alphabetically and include the wash out period for each product, the type of containment required when working with the product i.e. Class 2 type A2, Class 2 Type B2 or fume hood. It also indicates the type of decontaminant required for clean-up of the work area.

All chemical hazards must be listed on your animal use protocol and a procedure approved by EHS and DCM must in place before the start of any work.  The chemical hazard list can be found in SOP 3.10 “Safe Handling of Chemical Hazards”.
