Chemical Safety

Issues regarding chemical safety in the laboratory and the disposal of chemical wastes are key concerns of the Chemical Safety Committee (CSC). The CSC provides oversight of projects using chemical carcinogens and highly toxic materials, oversight of the campus chemical inventory and hazardous waste programs, and guidance regarding chemical safety training that is required for students, staff, and faculty who work in laboratories using hazardous chemicals. Research projects involving the use of chemical carcinogens are reviewed by the CSC to ensure compliance with current regulations. The CSC is also charged with reviewing the campus Chemical Hygiene plan, which governs safe use of chemicals in laboratories.
