The purpose of this policy is to define a procedure for handling products that come onto campus that have Safety Data Sheet (SDS) associated with their chemical makeup and handling.
All potentially hazardous materials require a SDS. If a department receives a SDS with an order, please forward a copy of this form to Environmental Health & Safety & Sustainability, 140 Hendrix Hall and retain the original in your office.
The Federal “Hazard Communication” Law states that training must occur upon initial employment. New York State’s Right-To-Know Law, requires annual training for employees that come in contact with products that have a SDS associated with them. It also states that all SDS must be kept on record.
Questions or concerns should be directed to Sarah Laurie in the Environmental Health & Safety & Sustainability office at ext 3796.
