Question # 345

345. It appears that janitorial type chemicals are exempt. Does this mean that if I use formaldehyde as a disinfectant in a sterile area in excess of the threshold, it is exempt?
No. The use of the disinfectant described in the question seems to be process-related and is therefore not exempt. Also, ‘janitorial type chemicals’ are not exempt; rather, toxic chemicals used for routine janitorial or facility grounds maintenance are exempt.
