For starters, you will find a lot of help in a little book available from the ACS.  It is called "Developing a Chemical Hygiene Plan"  and I think it is free if you only want a single copy.

Hi All,

We are looking into what training programs are required for your Chemical Hygiene Officer, how it is determined that the training is sufficient to do the job, and how is this person compensated?  I looked at the NRCC testing criteria.  Do you require your CHO to be certified before they are given this responsibility?

Thank you,
