Standard Operating Procedures for Commonly Used Hazardous Laboratory Chemicals
These standard operating procedures (SOPs) are created by Tufts Laboratory Safety with the goal of educating the Tufts community in the proper use of these commonly-used laboratory chemicals.
These SOPs cover the proper and safe storage, use, exposure response, and disposal for select chemicals. Under the OSHA-required Tufts chemical hygiene plan many of these chemicals are considered highly toxic and/or reactive and require a registration form be submitted to Tufts Laboratory Safety.
