Protecting the health and safety of every person on the Texas A&M University-Texarkana campus is of paramount importance, and it is a continuous work in progress.

The A&M-Texarkana Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP) constitutes written standard operating procedures designed to ensure laboratory operations are carried out in a manner that protects all persons from harmful exposures associated with hazardous chemicals, as well as complying with state and federal regulations and the Texas A&M University System Laboratory Standard.
