The foremost goal of the Chemical Safety program is to
minimize occupational and environmental exposure from hazardous
material usage in campus facilities. Toward this end, EHS provides
information pertaining to chemical storage and
container labeling requirements; compressed gas cylinder use; laboratory
safety; hazardous waste disposal and minimization procedures; freon
recovery; mercury thermometer exchange; and PCB light ballast
disposal and fluorescent light tubes and battery recycling procedures.
Program areas include Hazardous Waste Management and Chemical Hygiene.
