9.1 Every Laboratory under the MIOSHA laboratory standard must:

  • Conduct hazard assessments for the activities conducted in the laboratory and uses these assessments to develop written Standard Operating Procedures.
  • Make these procedures available to employees and train them to follow these procedures.
  • Document this training.
