This section offers information regarding basic operating guidelines for chemical safety. Included are lists of chemical/hazards requiring medical surveillance, information on tracking your chemical inventory, as well as recommendations for personal protective equipment and chemical protective clothing. Here you will also find how to respond to chemical threats and emergencies.

In general, all hazardous chemicals must be accounted for (inventoried) in each space, and all waste generated must be appropriately stored until picked-up by EH&S personnel for proper removal and disposal. 

Tracking Your Chemicals

Track your chemical stocks through EHS Assistant, an electronic information system that helps labs managers easily manage purchasing, receipt, and use of their inventory. Note: EHS Assistant may not work on all browsers. Use Firefox or Safari if you are having trouble accessing EHS Assistant.

Also, we have phased out and no longer use EHS Assistant for hazardous waste pick-up requests. 

Chemical Waste Storage, Removal, and Disposal

All information pertaining to waste storage and removal (pick-up requests) can be found at our Environmental Compliance Page.
