Subject: Fwd: [DCHAS-L] Chemical and Biological Inventory Hazard Analysis


At Stanford Univ., we've been using a home-grown chemical inventory
management application that analyzes our chemical inventories by regulatory
hazard classes (DOT, building code, fire codes, etc.) and generates vital
reports including:
- Building/ fire code compliance reports
- SARA and HMIS-type regulatory reports
- Customizable and ad-hoc queries, based on chemical hazard characteristics
and regulatory classifications

In last few years now, we've had upwards of ~10 other universities across
the country that have joined us in forming a consortium user group for this
application.  Please feel free to email if you'd like more detailed info of
this consortium's goals and efforts.
