Chemical Safety

The Chemical Safety Division responds to issues involving the use, storage, and disposal of hazardous substances at UMKC. For any questions and/or comments, please contact us.

  • 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 5,000 hazardous materials audits in the last ten years.
  • We provide emergency response efforts for hazardous chemical spills and releases.
  • The Chemical Management Plan (PDF), developed in cooperation with Region 7 EPA, is the university handbook of hazardous materials and waste safety. This document contains universal protocols for chemical tracking, storage, and proper disposal.
