Hazardous Materials Use and Storage

What services do we provide?

The University of Idaho is committed to providing safe and healthy facilities in which to work and learn and to protecting the environment. Current trends in federal and state environmental laws and regulations also reflect increasing concern by our society for protecting the environment through responsible hazardous materials disposal. This commitment to responsible and environmentally correct management of hazardous materials has prompted EHS to develop a comprehensive “Hazardous Materials Management & Disposal Policy & Procedures (Policy)” manual. The Policy incorporates federal and state regulations with university procedures and guidelines for the proper storage, transportation, handling, and disposal of hazardous materials. The Policy, coupled with training and the hazardous materials disposal program, should ensure that hazardous materials management practices remain safe for university employees and students, are in compliance with state and federal rules and regulations, and help protect our environment.

The Policy also provides guidance, information and instructions to follow in the event of an incident involving the release of hazardous materials at the University of Idaho.

NOTE: Radioactive materials/wastes, infectious materials/wastes, and asbestos containing materials are intentionally excluded from this policy because these materials are addressed in other university policies and procedures. Contact Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) to obtain policy information and/or guidance for the management of materials/wastes not within the scope of this policy.

What is your role?

All university faculty, staff and students are responsible for complying with the guidelines and procedures of university policy. Specifically, individuals using hazardous materials must accurately identify and label all materials; accumulate and store materials safely and securely; and request collection of the material by submitting electronic disposal requests to EHS. It is the responsibility of all supervisors and instructors to ensure that employees, students, guests, and visitors are aware of and follow the guidelines and procedures of this policy.
