Revision 3/2019

A Hazard Control Plan (HCP) is a standard operating procedure for a specific process performed in your laboratory or department.  The HCP describes the hazardous materials or equipment in use and details the controls that will be put in place to minimize risk of exposure, injury, and other incidents.  While the HCP may also include experimental procedures, its purpose is primarily to document the hazards and controls for the process.  An HCP is typically written for procedures with particularly high hazards or when new hazards are introduced for the first time.  A hazard assessment must be repeated and the HCP amended whenever changes are made to the process.

Use the template below or contact EHRS to request a review of your existing SOP for use as a Hazard Control Plan.
