All laboratory work with chemicals eventually produces chemical waste, and those who generate such waste have moral and legal obligations to see that the waste is handled and disposed of in ways that pose minimum potential harm, both short term and long term, to health and the environment. The objectives of this report are to present guidelines for laboratories in establishing a waste management system, to give specific recommendations to laboratory managers for the disposal of chemicals, and to make recommendations for constructive changes in regulations for disposal of chemicals from laboratories. This guide thoroughly assesses the full range of hazards encountered in laboratories and provides recommendations for handling dangerous substances in both ordinary and emergency situations.
