Chemical Fume Hood

The Division of Safety and Compliance maintains the Chemical Fume Hood Surveillance Program as part of the university’s effort to comply with the OSHA Laboratory Standard. A campus-wide laboratory fume hood survey is conducted on an annual basis. References and guides for safe operation of chemical fume hoods are provided in this section.

The regulations for chemical fume hood evaluations and safety are from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), 29 CFR 1910.94 and 29 CFR 1926.57 and can be located at http://www.osha.gov through their links to Laws and Regulations and then to Standards.
