For the second year in a row the Office of Environmental Health and Safety teamed up with Chemistry Graduate student interns, to verify the location of 38,330 chemical containers.

The Verification team visited 550 lab and chemical use spaces maintained by approximately 179 UNH faculty and staff across 38 departments and 19 campus buildings (including UNH Manchester). The team accomplished this enormous task well ahead of schedule, along with several other important safety projects. Special projects included collecting a complete and accurate inventory of refrigerators and freezers being used across campus to store specimens and chemicals and affixed reusable labels to compressed gas tanks across campus.

A special thanks to Cindi Rohwer who assisted with pulling together the talented inventory team as well as all the lab staff and PIs that allowed us access to their spaces. If you have any suggestions for next summer’s program or would like to see the data summaries from the project, contact Karrie Myer at OEHS 603-862-1510.
