4000 different chemicals wow
Are they laboratory quantities? If. You possess process quantities of certain chemicals osha requirements a PSM program.
Those chemicals that are unidentified legacy chemicals they must be identified and dispositioned properly while protecting the safety and health of those who open the containers and sample the contents.
After identifying and quantifying the waste it must be packaged and offered for shipment and disposal in accordance with a variety of regulations.
Hi Stefan,Very interesting point. This may actually help prevent stockpiling, especially if a fee is charged based on quantity lifecycle (as opposed to number of containers - you may start seeing gallons/kilogram bottles because the price is cheaper). Also, don't forget to add disposal costs.It's all economics these days :)Cheers,

Hard economic times lead to such inquiries from VP's.
I appreciate any comments regarding funding of chemical inventory systems, related staffing, and delivery vehicles, etc.
