I. Hazardous Materials

A hazardous material, as defined IHMM (Institute of Hazardous Materials Management) is any item or agent (biological, chemical, radiological, and/or physical), which has the potential to cause harm to humans, animals, or the environment, either by itself or through interaction with other factors.

The possession or use of kerosene, gasoline, benzene, naptha and similar flammable liquid is strictly forbidden. This prohibition includes but is not limited to any substance, material, or ingredient that may potentially be used for bomb making.

Should members of the OCU community encounter any kind of hazardous materials, please report to facilities or OCU-PD (depending on circumstance) for appropriate substance management.

Please see OCU's Emergency Procedures page on hazardous materials for information.
