Chemical Inventory Management

Chemical Inventory Management is required by the Workplace Right to Know “Public Employee Hazardous Chemical Protection and Right to Know Act of 1988” (O.C.G.A. 45-22-2). KSU uses Chematix Chemical Management System for chemical tracking as well as procurement and waste management. Chemicals are tracked from purchase to disposal through the system. All chemicals and chemical products are included. All chemicals and chemical products purchased at KSU must be reviewed and approved by EHS prior to purchase. The Chemical Approval Request Form should be completed and emailed to A Chemical Approval Report will be returned to the requestor which can be uploaded to the electronic P-card prior approval request, OwlPay or ePro requests. The Chemical Approval Report is valid for one year from the date on the report and may be reused as often as necessary. Note that the approval is for the chemical or chemical product from the listed manufacturer. The same chemical or chemical product from a different manufacturer will require a separate approval. In the absence of the Chemical Approval Report, the request will still be reviewed (approved or denied); however, the approval process may be delayed as pertinent information is gathered by EHS.
