ICSC Information

The OVPR announced the establishment of the Institutional Chemical Safety Committee (ICSC).  The Institutional Chemical Safety Committee (ICSC) has oversight and the responsibility to ensure that chemical containers located in all Tufts University research, teaching, and training spaces are accounted for and that the chemicals are stored properly and used in the safest possible manner.  Here is a link to the Institutional Chemical Safety Committee charge (ICSC OVPR Announcement).  Review this document to find what is considered a chemical (ICSC Chemical Inventory Policy).  The first part of their charge is to inventory all laboratory chemicals and add them to their platform BioRAFT.  Please follow this link or watch the video down below to a recording of a recent training lead by Chemical Safety Officers Amanda Carey and Kate Barry.  Once the initial inventory has been completed the labs will be responsible for updating the platform.

Please reach out to ICSC@tufts.edu with any questions.
