In Case of Lab Safety Emergency - refer to documents HERE that guide safety in our science classrooms and/or refer to instructions on online SDS sheets HERE and/or call the CMS Environmental Safety Dept. at 980-343-6040 for further guidance. Report all accidents to an administrator.

*HS Dept. Chairs

- before your capital outlay order can be approved, a digital copy of your updated Chemical Inventory, School Sci Lab Checklists for each room, and the School Lab Safety Sign-Off sheet must be submitted! All science teachers must complete the GHS Certification on MyTalent.

Please upload the following documents to your school's folder at this LINK:


  • School Lab Safety Sign-Off Sheet - only one copy per school with the signatures of all science teachers verifying GHS Certification



    • School Science Lab Checklist - this must be completed for each room where science lab activities are being taught in your school


    • Chemical Inventory Forms - a specific form is not required as long as it contains the chemical name, quantity, and location; Middle Schools may just want to create a short list of any chemicals they might have, how much they have, & where it is stored. Household products like vinegar and baking soda are considered chemicals & require a SDS sheet.

GHS Certification

You are REQUIRED to complete the following course within MyTalent within 1 month of hire date to receive GHS Certification:

#418380 PDV Hazard Communications (online)

The new HazCom module in MyTalent has been updated with the new GHS verbiage. We are prompting employees who have not had the required GHS training to watch a short video regarding the GHS changes to the standard before proceeding to the training module. OSHA requires the training to be done once for a new hire and then retraining if any chemicals or processes change. Our employees should go through our MyTalent training at least once (in addition to the orientation training) and they should especially take it if they haven’t had the GHS training. If any employees feel like they need a refresher they are certainly welcome to take the training annually.
