When conducting research, you may need to look up important chemical information or safety requirements. The following resources and references may help:
UChicago forms and information sheets
Chemical Inventory (PDF)
Emergency Contact Sheet (PDF)
Eyewash Log (PDF)
External references and resources
Occupational Exposure to Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratories, U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration
Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration Emergency Response Guidebook, U.S. Department of Transportation
Prudent Practices in the Laboratory, National Academies Press
This is the standard text detailing how chemicals should be handles, stored, secured, and disposed in the laboratory.
Safety Data Sheet Database
Laboratories must have access to safety data sheets for all the chemicals present in their laboratory. The University of Chicago has established an account with the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCINFO) Academic Support Program. This collection is accessible only from University of Chicago computers, or computers connected to the University of Chicago VPN.
