Chemical Inventory

Labs also need to provide UCF with an inventory of hazardous materials on hand. You can submit this inventory initially using this spreadsheet. For more information about Chemical Inventory, see the Chemical Inventory page or refer to UCF’s Chemical Inventory Policy for additional information.

Hazard Communication - including labeling and Lab Hazard Signs

UCF requires each lab that will be working with hazardous chemicals to communicate these hazards to others that may potentially be exposed. The proper labeling of chemical containers is covered under our Hazcom Program. It is also important that people who do not work in the lab are aware that hazardous chemicals are stored within. To accomplish this, all labs are required to post lab signage provided by EHS.

A commonly asked question is how do I find out more information about chemicals that may be present in my lab? These types of questions may be brought about by a concerned Graduate Assistant or another person curious about exposure risks. The EHS group keeps SDS (Safety Data Sheets) for all chemicals that are shipped to campus. In addition, many SDS sheets can be found online.
