What is UH Safety Solutions?

The Environmental Health & Safety Office at the University of Hawaii at Manoa is implementing a set of tools designed to improve safety and facilitate regulatory compliance in laboratories across campus. UH at Manoa will begin using a new software program which was developed at the University of California.

The software includes 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 that uses 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 native phone application as well as for tablet or desktop.

A variety of training materials on how to use the tools, including written tutorials and how-to videos, are available on the Assessment and Chemicals pages. For more information, contact EH&S at 956-5097 or email labsafe@hawaii.edu.
