Chemical inventory management is a necessary part of ensuring a safe work area and of being responsible stewards of our environment. In addition, maintaining an accurate inventory is a requirement of federal and state regulations.
To assist researchers and laboratory staff with managing their chemical information, Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) provides access to ChemTracker, a web-based chemical inventory management program that was developed by Stanford University. Users of the program are able to modify and track chemical inventory information, quickly look up chemical hazard and safety facts, and prepare reports. EHS uses data gathered from the program to ensure compliance with state and federal regulations and to provide information to emergency planning coordinators and emergency responders.
UPDATE 09/30/2014: ChemTracker Version 3 will no longer be available for use. All users should now be using ChemTracker Version 4 (CT4). Training information for CT4 is linked below, or contact EHS if you would like to schedule a training session with EHS personnel. In addition, ChemTracker has provided a Quick Guide and other useful information on their Help page, which is linked below or may be accessed directly from the ChemTracker program.
For more information on the software program and on the consortium of universities and colleges that use the ChemTracker program, please visit the ChemTracker website.
