Risk Assessments

Standard Operating Procedures

Copies of the Hazard Assessment Sheet and Standard/Particular Operating Procedures should be kept together in a folder in your laboratory. At any time a WHS inspector can visit the building unannounced and ask to see anyone’s WHS folder.

If new techniques/processes are required to be used as research progresses, the appropriate Standard or Particular Operating Procedures should be added to your WHS folder.
