Annual Chemical Inventory and Laboratory Cleanout
The CMU Lab Safety Committee in cooperation with Risk Management/Environmental Health & Safety is holding its annual chemical inventory and laboratory cleanout period August 24-September 4, 2015, to focus on chemical inventory reduction and management.  A chemical inventory for each lab is critical and required in meeting government reporting and compliance requirements, as well as being useful and helpful for the faculty and staff.  Click HERE for more information.

More than 200 sources of publicly available data on environmental chemicals have been brought together and made searchable by chemical name and other identifiers, and by chemical structure. Data includes chemical structure, physico-chemical values, in vitro assay data and in vivo toxicology data. Chemicals include, but are not limited to, high and medium production volume industrial chemicals, pesticides (active and inert ingredients), and potential ground and drinking water contaminants. ​​
