Chemical Inventory Program

Description

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 1/24/2014: The ChemTracker program has recently been updated. While version 3 (v3) is still available to use right now, CT 4.0 has a much cleaner interface and is easier to use. All versions of ChemTracker use the same database of records for our institution, so there is no need to move your records from one version to the other.


To obtain login credentials or assistance with using the ChemTracker program, please email
