The National Library of Medicine’s web guide to laboratory safety has a section devoted to regulations and standards ( http://sis.nlm.nih.gov/enviro/labsafety.html#a7 ). It is not an exhaustive list but a starting point. We would also be interested in seeing the final list so that we could expand our existing list of resources.
For anyone interested, here is the complete set of sections for this web guide:

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Requesting help with CHAS project
I'm working with Janice Dodge on the "regulations" module for the CHAS project for the graduate student competency program. We want to make sure we include all federal regulations (OSHA, EPA, CFATS, DEA, etc) and national consensus standards (ANSI, NFPA, CGA, etc) that a Chemistry Graduate Student may need to know to work safely in a lab and hopefully get a job with some safety program elements.
This group has lots of great ideas & knowledge, so I'm sure you have a few favorite regulations/consensus standards that you know should be included.
Please send me (thru list or directly) the SPECIFIC federal code (e.g. OSHA 1910.1450) or US National consensus standard (e.g. NFPA 45) and the title or scope of the requirements. We are looking for requirements that are specific to work with chemicals in a lab and also general lab safety. We are not including building type codes (asbestos, lead, boilers).
