When working with carcinogens, always use proper handling procedures to avoid unnecessary exposure to the material.  ESH - Industrial Hygiene (extension 2-5641) is available for assistance in establishing proper procedures to be used and, if necessary, any environmental monitoring.

The ANL Environment, Safety and Health Manual details the procedures to follow for safe handling of carcinogens in its Chapter 4-5, Chemical Carcinogens.  That chapter also contains a list of chemical carcinogens.
