5.1 EHS Assistant

  • EHS Assistant is a web-based inventory system offered by EHS to assist hazardous material users with maintaining information on chemicals within their areas. In addition, EHS Assistant has an embedded SDS system. It also permits tracking of chemicals with expiration dates to proactively manage materials that become dangerous due to aging.
  • Each BET member will be given global access to chemical inventories within their area of responsibility.
  • EHS Assistant information is also available to emergency responders, i.e., Iowa City Fire Department, Coralville Fire Department (Oakdale Campus) and the Johnson County HazMat Team. Access is provided for use during an actual spill response.
