3.  Where and What to Inventory

All hazardous materials and chemicals, whether purchased by CCSD or privately, that are stored or used during the course of work shall be inventoried; those for personal use should not be inventoried. The inventory should include hazardous materials and chemicals stored or used in the classrooms, storage areas, and other building areas for cleaning, landscaping, maintenance, operations, and pest control.

Chemicals are found in many products that we use at CCSD. This list provides some examples of hazardous materials and chemicals which may be found in various school/facility areas.  Any material with a hazard warning (such as "flammable," "combustible," "keep out of reach of children," "corrosive," "use with ventilation") should be reported unless the material is strictly for personal use.
