Academic, research, and facility operations that use hazardous chemicals and subsequently generate hazardous chemical waste
A comprehensive hazardous materials program is in place at ASU that provides guidelines for the use of chemicals that generate hazardous waste. This program is designed to minimize the possibility of a threat to human health or the environment caused by fire, explosion, or any unplanned release of hazardous materials into the air, soil, or surface water.
University faculty, staff, and students who generate hazardous waste must cooperate with Environmental Health & Safety to ensure the safe and proper identification, collection, accumulation, packaging, and disposal of hazardous wastes. Environmental Health & Safety does not accept unknown wastes.
University faculty and staff who generate hazardous waste are encouraged to participate in the one-hour Hazardous Waste Management for Laboratories and Facility Operations training program offered by Environmental Health & Safety. This program should be completed before starting activities or operations that generate hazardous waste.
Environmental Health & Safety provides technical assistance as well as emergency incident response services in the event of a chemical fire, explosion, and/or release. For hazardous waste management consultation services, call Environmental Health & Safety at 480/965–1823.
