All School of Molecular Sciences laboratories must be registered annually.
Laboratory registration is the process through which ASU maintains laboratory emergency contacts and information, develop and maintain laboratory chemical inventories, and establish laboratory safety inspections for ensuring compliance with the ASU Chemical Hygiene Plan.
Only currently registered lab spaces are permitted for the use of hazardous chemicals by the State of Arizona’s Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and the ASU Fire Marshal.
The registration must be updated annually to ensure emergency contact information is up-to-date and chemical inventories are accurate. ASU Policy EHS 104
A laboratory is defined as a facility or room where potentially hazardous chemicals, biological agents or sources of energy (e.g. lasers, high voltage, radiation, etc.) are used and where scientific experimentation, research, or education occurs.
If you have a room, or share a room or facility that uses hazardous materials and it is not currently registered with EH&S, please complete the registration process. Instructions for completing the registration are available here.
To register your lab
The Principal Investigator (PI) or a designee must complete and submit the following to John.Crozier@asu.edu.
- Responsible Party Information (RPI) form (Word Document)
- Chemical Inventory Template (Excel Document) - include quantities and hazard rating information for all hazardous materials, including compressed gases
Submit these forms on your lab’s anniversary registration date, or when you have updates or changes to the RPI sheet or your lab's chemical inventories. Registrations may be completed on the web. If you choose to register via the web and you are not already an EHSA user, you will need to request access as a new user. Tutorials are available to help guide you.
Signage related to the registration will be sent to the PI or SMS safety office for posting at the laboratory entrance(s). The lab registration sign provides important reference information in the event EH&S or emergency response personnel must enter the lab or contact you.
