Hazardous chemical wastes are generated in many different processes at the University of New Haven. These include laboratory teaching and research processes, building operations and custodial service tasks. The proper management of hazardous wastes is critical to ensure that the University is operating to protect the safety and health of employees and students as well as keeping in compliance with local, state and federal regulations.
Proper management of wastes includes: correctly identifying wastes, appropriately labeling wastes, storing wastes properly, performing required weekly inspections; and ensuring that all storage time limits are met. Additional waste information can be found in the University’s Chemical Hygiene Plan.
