EH&S Upgrade to WashU’s Chemical Inventory System

Published May 2, 2019

Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) in partnership with WashU IT will be rolling out at the end of May 2019 an upgrade to the University’s Environmental Management System (EHS Assistant). The EHS Assistant Chemical Inventory function supports EH&S and the University in monitoring chemical inventory information required by many regulatory agencies, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD), City and County Fire Marshals and Building Code Offices.

This system upgrade will maintain current functionality, but will change the user interface (look and feel) of the Chemical Inventory System screens, such as those for adding, editing and deleting chemical information. A new enhancement is that users will be able to search for Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) on a product basis in the new system.

A training video and tutorial will be available later in May 2019 for you to familiarize yourself with the new system. Another notice will be sent when the links to the training are available.

Please contact EH&S at, 314-747-6549, if you have any questions. Thank you.
