EH&S ASSISTANT:
Chemical Inventory: OSHA Regulations
• Occupational Health and Safety
Administration (OSHA)
 Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR)
1910.1450, Occupational Exposure to Hazardous
Chemicals in Laboratories (OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1450)
 As part of this code, a Chemical Hygiene Plan
(CHP) is required for each lab using hazardous
chemicals. Maintaining a current chemical
inventory is a part of the CHP.

EH&S ASSISTANT:
Chemical Inventory: EH&S Assistant
• EHSRM purchased the program Environmental Health &
Safety Assistant from On Site Systems, Inc. of St. Louis.
This is a web-based program that stores your inventory
information electronically.
– Note: this program replaces the Excel Chemical Inventory Template
(Formerly Appendix 10 of the CHP)
• If you are on a UAF campus or at a UAF facility, all you
need is access to the internet. It will work with any web
browser.
– Note: there have been some issues when using Internet Explorer
• If you need to connect from off-campus or at a non-UAF
facility, you will need to install the Cisco AnyConnect VPN
software:

EH&S ASSISTANT:
Chemical Inventory: Required Information
• If you are already in the system and have a username and
password, proceed to the next slide
• If you are not entered into the system, please contact the
Industrial Hygiene section of EHSRM at 474-5197 or
[email protected]
• Have the following information available:
 Lab location (building and room number)
 Name and UAF ID number for the PI (Principle Investigator),
employees and(or) students working in the lab that will need
access to the inventory
 Preferred username and password otherwise one will be
assigned to each lab worker OR one username and password
can be assigned to all personnel under a PI for each lab
4
EH&S ASSISTANT:
Chemical Inventory: EH& Assistant URL
• Once you have your Username and Password, you
can log onto the system using the following URL:
http://137.229.5.169/ehsaweb/ehsawebisapi.dll
 Once you log on to the program, your URL will
look like this:
http://137.229.5.169/ehsaweb/ehsawebisapi.dll/0ib1ie40z9f
r851bbqqlj13jcx0z/
 The string of characters after the “.dll/” may be different
when you log on
 You can bookmark the URL with or without the last string
of characters after “.dll/”

EH&S ASSISTANT:
Chemical Inventory: Important Information
• Some points to remember:
 If your lab had a chemical inventory on file with EHSRM as of
August 2011, your inventory is already in the system, BUT,
you need to enter the number of containers, the size of the
containers (how much does the container hold), and the unit
of measure (mg, ml, lb, kg, etc.)
 Do not use your browser’s back button to return to the
previous page. It won’t work. Use “Save”, “Main Menu”,
“Back”, “Choose”, “Cancel”, “Select”, or “Log Off”.
 This symbol
will bring up a pop-up list for you to choose
from. In some fields, choosing from the pop-up list will be
the only way to enter information into that field.
 Your browser may ask to allow pop-ups, but you can restrict
it to this website only.

EH&S ASSISTANT:
Chemical Inventory: More Important Information
• More points to remember:
 If the program is open and idle for more than 2 hours, it
will kick you out. You will be given a link to log back on.
 This tutorial just covers the basic steps to get you
started on your inventory. Spend time exploring the
system to see how the different links work.
 Finally, it really helps to have 2 people and a laptop to
work on an inventory:
̶ One to do the typing and the other to don the proper
PPE and handle the chemical containers
