Environmental Health and Safety

Your health and safety are important to us, whether you are a student, faculty or staff member or a visitor at Chaffey College. That’s why the Chaffey Community College District has established health and safety programs to reduce and/or control occupational safety and health risks and promote a culture of safety throughout the college. We’ve integrated safety awareness and practices into activities at Chaffey College through education, training, communication, evaluations and inspections.

Chaffey College designed the biosafety program to minimize or eliminate employee, student and public exposure to biohazards with the district. The blood borne pathogen plan and the medical waste management plan are two principal components of the program. More information about material safety data sheets (MSDS) or safety data sheets (SDS) can be found MSDSonline. Contact Chemical Hygiene Officer Sam Gaddie for questions about biosafety at 909-652-6425 or sam.gaddie@chaffey.edu.


Chemical Safety

The chemical safety plan is designed to minimize or eliminate employee, student and public exposure to the health and physical hazards of chemicals used by the district. The chemical hygiene plan and MSDSOnline are the two principal components of this program. Additional resources are available through Flinn Scientific, Inc. and its material safety data sheets search, as well as information on scientific products, equipment and services at Avantor.


Injury and Illness Prevention Plan

Chaffey College provides the injury and illness prevention plan for supervisors and managers to promote safe and healthy work practices.

Health and Safety Committee

The district health and safety committee [NOTE: hyperlink to new URL] meets on a regular basis (at least quarterly) to review areas of concern to assure a safe and healthy environment for all students, faculty, staff and visitors. The committee evaluates and makes recommendations regarding district health and safety policies and procedures.



Material Safety Data Sheets and Safety Data Sheets (MSDS/SDS) are an important source of health and safety information. The district currently uses MSDS Online chemical inventory/Material Safety Data Sheet management system to manage MSDSs/SDSs. Additional resources are available through Flinn Scientific, Inc. (MSDS Search) and VWR (MSDS Search).

A material safety data sheet (MSDS), safety data sheet (SDS) or product safety 
data sheet (PSDS) is an important component of product stewardship and occupational safety and health. It is intended to provide workers and emergency personnel with procedures for handling or working with that substance in a safe manner, and includes information such as physical data (melting point, boiling point, flash point, etc.), toxicity, health effects, first aid, reactivity, storage, disposal, protective equipment and spill-handling procedures. MSDS formats can vary from source to source within a country depending on national requirements.


The US-based National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has a standard NFPA 704 using a diamond with four colored sections each with a number indicating severity 0—4 (0 for no hazard, 4 indicates a severe hazard). The red section denotes flammability. The blue section denotes health risks. Yellow represents reactivity (tendency to explode). The white section denotes special hazard information. One example of a special hazard would be the capital letter W crossed out (pictured left) indicating it is water reactant. This label is used primarily in the US.
