| Standard Number:||1910.1450; 1910.1450(b)|
an employee who is designated by the employer, and who is qualified by training or experience, to provide technical guidance in the development and implementation of the provisions of the Chemical Hygiene Plan. This definition is not intended to place limitations on the position description or job classification that the designated individual shall hold within the employer's organizational structure. [29 CFR 1910.1450(b); emphasis added].Additionally, the standard defines an "employee" as "an individual employed in a laboratory workplace who may be exposed to hazardous chemicals in the course of his or her assignments." [29 CFR 1910.1450(b)]. Thus, 29 CFR 1910.1450 does not permit a laboratory employer to designate a consultant who is not an employee of the laboratory as the Chemical Hygiene Officer. The standard, however, does not preclude employers from soliciting the assistance of a consultant in the development and administration of the Chemical Hygiene Plan.
