The Chemical Safety Division responds to issues involving the use, storage and disposal of hazardous substances at UMKC.
- By incorporating the use of both a bar coding system to inventory and track materials and a reactive compatibility grouping system as a reliable safety measure, the staff oversees over 400 laboratories and has recorded over 5000 hazardous materials audits in the last 10 years.
- We provide Emergency Response efforts for chemical spills of hazardous materials.
- The Chemical Management Plan (pdf), developed in cooperation with Region 7 EPA, is the university handbook of laboratory safety. The Plan contains the approved treatment protocols for laboratory neutralization of accepted hazardous materials.
