Mandatory Safety Training

HAZCOM vs CHP Labs

The School of Materials Engineering labs are classified as either Hazard Communication or Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP) spaces according to the type of work performed. See the Overview of Lab Facilities for a detailed list and the overview of REM Training Modules.

Lab Cleanliness

It is the expectation of the School of Materials Engineering and Purdue University that we uphold the highest standard of lab cleanliness and best practices. Anyone who chooses not to adhere to this standard will be considered negligent, and lab privileges will be revoked.
