BioRAFT ChemTracker - Chemical Inventory Program
Chemical inventory management is a necessary part of ensuring a safe work area. Safety & Risk Mangaement is responsible for maintaining accurate chemical inventories, which are a requirement of federal and state regulations.
BioRAFT ChemTracker is a centralized web-based Chemical Inventory Program, which will assist researchers and laboratory staff with managing their chemical information. This program allows lab personnel to add, delete, modify and track their inventory online, as well as prepare reports. Safety & Risk Mangement will search for specific chemicals to identify safety issues and run regulatory reports, with an effort to remain in compliance with federal and state regulations.

ChemTracker has the ability to search the chemical inventories of other campus laboratories. Laboratories may share infrequently used chemicals, or redistribute surplus chemicals.
The chemical inventory management system requires that all hazardous chemicals are entered into the BioRAFT ChemTracker system. Hazardous chemicals may be defined by any of the following standards:
Hazard information can be found directly on the product pages of vendor websites and online catalogs. The chemical must be entered into the BioRAFT ChemTracker system, if the safety information appears on the product page and one of the following hazard pictograms is present.
If safety information is not apparent on the product page, then you will need to review the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for the product - a link to the SDS is often on the product page. BioRAFT ChemTracker also provides the SDS look up within the system.
Chemicals and other supplies that do not meet the definition of a hazardous chemical are not required to be entered into the BioRAFT ChemTracker system. See "How Do I Identify A Hazardous Chemical?"
Currently the BioRAFT program does not allow for individuals to view another laboratorie's inventory to ascertain what chemicals they have stocked in the laboratory. Only BioRAFT administrators are able to see the inventory of the entire campus. If you would like to know if another laboratory has a chemical that you need to use you will need to send an email to the department/college asking for the other laboratorie's to check their inventories and let you know if they have the chemical you need.
