High Hazard Chemical Registration
At Tufts University all highly reactive and toxic chemicals must be registered with Tufts Environmental Health and Safety
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Plan
Deans, Directors, Department Chairs, Department Managers, Principal Investigators and supervisors at Tufts University must review the Personal Protective Equipment Plan for Tufts University.
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.
