Chemical Safety

Chemical Safety is responsible for the “cradle to grave” management of chemicals, in accordance with Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) regulatory requirements. Chemical Safety is also responsible for managing the ground and air shipping of hazardous materials/dangerous goods, in accordance with the Department of Transportation (DOT) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) regulatory requirements.

Additional services include responding to spills/releases on a 24-hour basis, conducting internal OSHA/EPA/DOT audits and maintaining databases to comply with the recordkeeping requirements mandated by the regulations. Chemical Safety also monitors the reporting of “Chemicals of Interest”, pursuant to the Department of Homeland Security regulatory requirements and on-site chemical threshold planning quantities, related to the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA).
