Environmental, Health, & Safety Plans

By regulations, Federal, State and Local, employers are required to establish a set of safety programs and plans to address hazards that their employees encounter. To assist our Fellow Companies with this compliance, we’ve created a set of critical EH&S startup programs and plans that meet the minimum requirements in accordance to regulations.

 

In order for you to adopt these as your company specific plans, you must do the following steps:

View copies of our umbrella EHS programs here: HomeLab EHS - Plans and Programs.

The document(s) contain verbiage to cover both LabFellows, Fellow Companies and their Fellows within our HomeLab locations.

Review any Fellow Company specific practices or SOP link(s) that may be applicable sections at the end of the document.

Submit any applicable Fellow Company specific practices or SOP link(s) to ehs@homelab.com for review.

If any concerns, our HomeLab EHS team will reach out to your Primary Fellow.

A company representative (Primary Fellow, CEO, and/or the Safety Coordinator) will sign the document via HelloSign to certify understanding and implementation of the program. (if applicable)

Finally, save signed copy to your Fellow Company’s specific EHS folder in LabFellows Cloud (Admin Dashboard > Documents > EHS Plans and Programs folder.

Injury and Illness Prevention (IIPP), Emergency Action Plan (EAP), and Fire Prevention Plan (FPP)

The IIPP, EAP, and FPP are basic written workplace safety programs. Title 8 of the California Code of Regulations (T8CCR) section 3203, 3220, and 3221 requires every employer to develop and implement effective IIPP, EAP, and FPP plans, respectively. Effective IIPP, EAP, and FPP programs improve the safety and health in your workspace and reduces costs by good management and employee involvement.

Chemical Hygiene Plan and Hazard Communication Program

OSHA’s Occupational Exposure to Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratories standard (29 CFR 1910.1450), referred to as the Laboratory standard, specifies the mandatory requirements of a Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP) to protect laboratory workers from harm due to hazardous chemicals. The CHP is a written program stating the policies, procedures and responsibilities that protect workers from the health hazards associated with the hazardous chemicals used in that particular workplace.
