Chemical Inventory Management

University safety policy SY39 requires that all work areas maintain a chemical inventory in the Chemical Inventory Management System (CHIMS).

Regular use and required annual updates of the chemical inventory is an essential part of Penn State's efforts to comply with various regulations as well as to provide critical information to emergency responders entering an area where hazardous chemicals are present.

Work areas are also required to maintain a hard copy of their CHIMS chemical inventory.

The form to request new accounts can be found on the Forms tab to the left.
