The University has implemented the CHEMATIX chemical inventory system to facilitate the management and inventory of chemicals used for various academic and operational needs within its campus.
CHEMATIX uses barcodes as a unique identifier to track chemical containers. The system tracks hazardous materials from “cradle to grave” and will assist the University in achieving good business practices as well as meeting its regulatory requirements to maintain an inventory of all chemicals being used and stored within its facilities.
University departments using chemicals are required to register their chemical use and storage locations in CHEMATIX and ensure all chemicals are barcoded and entered into the inventory.
Compliance with Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) requirements (Safety Data Sheets, labels and training) is also required.
