Chemical Inventory

  • Each PI/Lab Manager is required to maintain an inventory of chemicals stored and produced
    in their laboratory.
  • Laboratories can use the SBU EHS Chemical Inventory form or any other template that
    includes full chemical name, CAS number, Manufacturer Name.
  • Nitric acid is one of the chemicals of interest regulated by DHS and a separate inventory
    must be maintained (
    Nitric Acid Security Plan).

Chemical Storage and Handling 

  • Label all chemicals: Make sure all labels are legible and in good condition. Unknown
    chemicals can be expensive to dispose of.
  • Label chemical storage areas.
  • Store chemicals in cabinets and on shelving provided for such storage.
  • Do not store incompatible chemicals in close proximity to each other.
  • Provide secondary containment for liquids that can contain 100 percent of your largest
    container or 10 percent of total volume whichever is greatest
    40 CFR 264.175.
  • Avoid storing chemicals in the fume hood or under the sink.
  • Keep containers closed unless you are dispensing a chemical or adding to the container.
