Risk Management & Safety

NFPA signs are useful for alerting the fire department and other first responders to possible hazards that may be contained in a lab or room on campus. One of the benefits of the Chemical Inventory program is that these signs are automatically generated based on inventory within the system to provide the most complete picture of the overall hazard rating of the room. These signs are updated and redistributed periodically by RMS staff after a new inventory has been completed. Per request, optional contact information may also be added to the sign, including the name of the lab directory or PI, the laboratory's name, or other contact information relevant to the space.

If you wish to update or edit the optional contact information on an NFPA sign for a room you manage, or reprint a sign currently in place, you can do so on CHIMERA.
