McMaster University is committed to providing a system for proper management of all hazardous materials which includes acquisition, storage, handling, use and disposal. Specific programs as well as training modules have been developed for hazardous materials and we are constantly reviewing, improving and adding to our programs and training. McMaster is serious about ensuring everyone understands the hazards these materials pose to both people and the environment and that everyone works appropriately with them. McMaster takes a pro-active approach to protecting both people and the environment and will only work with hazardous disposal companies that show a commitment to protecting the environment.
