Chemical Inventory in BioRaft

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that all institutions have an up-to-date and accurate chemical inventory per the Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200). In an effort to simplify this process for investigators and researchers, we are migrating to an online system called BioRaft and the chemical safety officers are completing the initial upload.
