6. Hazard Identification

Policies and regulations on hazard identification with respect to labeling and Safety Data Sheets are:

  • Labels on incoming containers of hazardous chemicals are not to be removed or defaced.
  • The primary campus access to Safety Data Sheets is through the internet, particularly the UC SDS search engine. See Sec. II-13. Individual labs are encouraged to maintain their own hardcopy files as well.
  • For chemical substances developed in University laboratories, the provisions for hazard determination, training and labeling shall be those stated in the Laboratory Standard.
