Regulated Materials Management

Risk Management and Safety


Services include: Purchasing of laboratory chemicals and radioactive materials; Guidance for transportation of hazardous materials in compliance with Department of Transportation regulations; and Disposal of biological, chemical, radioactive, electronic and universal wastes (such as batteries and mercury-containing fluorescent lamps). Whenever possible, this program seeks to reduce, reuse or recycle in order to minimize disposal costs and environmental impact. Staff in this area also conduct industrial waste water sampling and assist with management of underground storage tanks.

These programs are overseen by Hazardous Materials Supervisor Neil Day.
