Safety & Risk Management is implementing a set of tools designed to improve safety and facilitiate regulatory compliance in laboratories across campus. Chico State will begin using the software, which was developed at the University of California, by October 31, 2018.

The software includes three integrated modules:

  • Assessment: This tool allows principal investigators to identify hazards related to their research and share this and other critical safety information about these hazards with the members of their lab.
  • Chemicals: A chemical inventory management tool thatuses a barcoding system to quickly add chemicals to an inventory. It includes a library of chemicals that are referenced to populate chemical details, like hazards and first aid information. Chemicals is available in a phone app as well as for tablet or desktop.
  • Inspect: A flexible, customized tool that manages the scheduling, completion and long-term tracking of safety inspections. It is available for phones, tablets, and desktops.

UC Risk and Safety Solutions developed Assessment, Chemicals, and Inspect as part of its suite to risk management and safety tools. The software has been used extensively throughout UC's ten campuses and five medical centers.
