The Environmental Health & Safety Department (EH&S) assists organizational units in meeting their responsibility to protect the environment and to provide a safe and healthful place for employment and learning.
UW employees who use chemicals or chemical-containing products at any UW owned or leased facility are required to maintain chemical inventories in MyChem, the UW’s chemical tracking system.
EH&S is responsible for the collection of hazardous chemical waste for the University, including all campuses and off-side locations. Hazardous chemical waste is defined as any liquid, gaseous, or solid chemical that is ignitable, corrosive, reactive, toxic, or persistent, and is no longer useful or wanted.
