Small Scale Use of Chemicals Policy


Purpose


This policy will ensure that hazardous substances are contained in such a way as to isolate them from the wider community and environment, and to minimise or, where possible, eliminate risk to users of hazardous substances.

It will also ensure that the University meets the requirements to allow exemption under s33 of the HSNO Act and to ensure compliance with Health and Safety in Employment Act, 1992.

Background


In order to claim exemption from approval, laboratories and workshops must meet the requirements of the HSNO (Exempt Laboratory) Regulations, 2001 using the ERMA approved HSNO Code of Practice for University and CRI Exempt Laboratories (CoP 1/1) as a means of compliance.
