SUBJECT: Safety Policies and Procedures Manual

With this memorandum, we are announcing a reorganization of the Safety Policies and Procedures Manual (SPPM).

For clarity and ease of use, we have renumbered the sections and created new chapters based upon the following functional subjects:

  • Emergency Contacts
  • Introduction / Organization
  • General Workplace Safety
  • Shop / Agricultural Workplace Safety
  • Laboratory Safety
  • Chemical / Hazardous Material Safety
  • Public Health and Environmental Quality
  • Motor Vehicle Safety
  • Fire Safety
  • Radiation Safety


To ensure continuity, we have added forwarding links and forwarding link pages for all of the old SPPM sections. However, we do recommend that users update any SPPM links and bookmarks to the URLs for the reorganized manual sections.

Users may access the reorganized SPPM from our Manuals website at:
