Pennsylvania Worker and Community Right to Know regulations require the university to conduct an inventory, of products and substances containing chemicals used every day in our work environments, on an annual basis.  Given that each organizational unit on campus orders and uses a variety of products and substances in your daily operation, we are requesting your assistance in helping us to meet the regulatory requirements of the Worker and Community Right to Know Act by completing the inventory for your particular area.  Inventory packages, describing the inventory requirement and process should be arriving via campus mail within the next day or two.  Should you have questions regarding the inventory process, contact EHS at Ext. 34050.  Thank you.
