Secrets to Ensuring Accurate and Compliant Chemical Inventory Reports
Anne Sefried, Sr. Technical Specialist/Inventory Consultant , ChemSW

From lubricants to solvents, from flammable materials to corrosives, many organizations handle and store a number of different chemicals. It’s not enough to ensure that you know where chemicals are, provide training and information about correct handling procedures, and ensure that chemicals are stored and disposed appropriately. It is also important to report to external agencies what chemicals are on site, the quantities of those chemicals, and how and where they are stored. The stakes are higher if those chemicals are hazardous materials.
