Chemical Inventory Program

Managing chemicals and hazardous materials is a critical safety concern. Improper storage, use, and disposal of hazardous materials can result in potentially life-threatening accidents. As a part of our continued commitment to the safety of all research staff, faculty, and students at CU Boulder (UCB); EH&S has assembled a thorough set of documents and handouts to aid in understanding and following the operating procedures for maintaining a proper inventory.

EH&S maintains and operates a chemical inventory database to facilitate safe chemical management and to insure that all labs on campus are in compliance with various federal and local regulatory requirements. In addition to adhering to various regulatory requirements, chemical inventories must be provided to emergency responders in the case of an incident. The goal of this system is to serve as a collection site of chemical inventories from all research laboratories and maintenance shops on Boulder campus. Utilizing a user-friendly website and streamlined workflow, research personnel will be able to actively maintain their chemical inventory and search what items they have on a live basis.
