References/Tools

Chemical Hygiene and Safety Plan (CHSP) – contains the Lab’s procedures to implement hazard communication and chemical use requirements.

Chemical Management System (CMS) – is the tool used to document and communicate hazards about chemicals.

Hazard Management System (HMS) – is the tool used to connect EHS source systems and manage hazard information.

lbnl procurement
LBNL Procurement

Ensure that requesters, preparers, and buyers adhere to the Laboratory’s hazardous material procurement procedures.

Maintain a restricted items list in consultation with the EH&S Division.

Notify EH&S of Restricted Item purchases.

Obtain EH&S approval for purchases of restricted items that require EH&S approval.

restricted item list
Restricted Item List

Chemicals: lethal toxicants, unstable and reactive materials

Hazardous and toxic gases

Chemical storage cabinets

Fume hoods

Gas storage cabinets

Refrigerators and freezers for flammable liquid storage

Respiratory protective equipment

lbnl transportation
LBNL Transportation

Ensure that hazardous materials are transported in accordance with federal, state, and local requirements.

Ensure that all hazardous materials received at LBNL are safely delivered to requesters.

Provide guidance to Laboratory personnel for off-site shipment of hazardous materials in accordance with Department of Transportation requirements.

Ensure the proper storage and handling of chemicals awaiting delivery.

Request guidance from EH&S for items requiring special handling.

transporting hazardous materials
Transporting Hazardous Materials

Hazardous materials are transported by Transportation Services or a Department of Transportation authorized carrier (except as outlined below).

Transportation Services (ext. 5404) transports hazardous materials, provided they are unopened and still in their original U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) shipping containers. They also transport gas cylinders.

EH&S Waste Management Group (ext. 7528) transports hazardous materials that have previously been opened. This is normally needed for laboratory moves.

Transporting hazardous materials by employees in public transportation (such as the shuttle bus) or in private or government vehicles, is not permitted.

Not designed to track usage

ISM Focused:

Dependent upon chemical users input and activity
