In order to comply with the EPA's Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know regulations and the OSHA Laboratory Standard, the University must compile an annual inventory identifying the exact location (building and room) and quantity of all hazardous chemicals on campus. This information also helps EH&S and Greenville Fire and Rescue respond appropriately during emergencies.
Items required to be inventoried include laboratory chemicals, paints, solvents, pesticides, petroleum products (fuels), compressed gases, cleaning products and any other material for which a Material Data Safety Sheet (MSDS) exists.
Each department is responsible for completing their inventory. To facilitate the submission of the inventory, a template and all supporting documentation is available below.
