Teachers, educators, administrators or facility managers that have laboratories are using the School Chemical List to evaluate the hazards of pure chemical compounds or chemical constituents they have in stock.
This on-line tool is for anyone who needs information to assess risks and inventory chemicals. With the easy search tool you can find the chemical by name, the exposure and safety hazards, environmental toxicity, appropriate grade level and the common experiments, if any, that use the chemical. The information can be quickly converted to an Excel file for on site use.
Schools with science laboratories are required to have complete chemical inventories, safety data sheets for all hazardous chemicals in storage, written hazard communication and chemical hygiene plans and staff trained in all these topics. See our Science Teacher Workshops page for information and assistance in meeting these requirements.
The program is funded and administered by the Local Hazardous Waste Management Program in King County. Contact Dave Waddell firstname.lastname@example.org, 206-263-3069 for more information.
