A Hazardous Chemical Inventory is a comprehensive list or database that provides detailed information about the hazardous chemicals present in a facility. From this inventory, users can find data on the names and quantities of chemicals. Additionally, it shares the chemical’s locations within the facility, associated hazards, storage requirements, and some relevant safety precautions.


According to OSHA, facilities need to maintain an inventory of this type to ensure effective chemical safety management and public safety. It also helps handle emergencies and mitigate risks to the health and safety of workers and the environment.
