The Chemical Management Center goal is to help faculty and staff manage and use chemicals safely in academic research and teaching labs on campus. All chemical order are reviewed by the CMC before orders are sent to suppliers.
The CMC helps the YSU campus community adhere to the Occupational Health Exposure Plan, namely the Chemical Hygiene Plan based on 29 CFR 1910.1450.
The CMC also ensures compliance with CFATS(Chemical Facility Antiterrorism Standard)
If you need to ship hazardous materials, please contact the CMC.
Here are the rules/regulations for the safe use of chemicals on YSU's campus.
Chemical Safety Rules
It is the reasonability of each faculty and staff member, as well as students to know and follow the Chemical Hygiene Plan. No work is permitted in labs until a student has read and understood the chemical hygiene plan.
Safety data sheets are available for review in the lab, in the CMC, or at the Chemwatch site below.
Any questions about chemical compounds including gas cylinders, cryogenics including liquid nitrogen and dry ice, and hazardous waste should be directed to Tim Styranec at extension 3703 or tmstyranec at ysu.edu. Universal waste such as light bulbs and batteries should also be sent to the CMC.
The chemical inventory is also maintained by the CMC using www.chemicalsafety.com
Lab inspections are ongoing and on request by the CMC.
All requests for hazardous waste, biohazard waste, and battery pickup should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
