Standard Operating Procedures
Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are written instructions that describe in detail how to perform a process or experiment safely and effectively. It can cover the specific and general uses of a chemical or class of chemicals, use of equipment and machinery, and safety processes performed on campus. SOPs are a requirement of the Chemical Hygiene Plan, which also outlines PI and lab responsibilities related to SOPs.
