The Office of Environmental Health & Safety and Chemistry Department graduate students will be conducting the campus chemical inventory verification over an 8 week period in 2023 from June 5th through July 28th, 8 am to 12 pm daily.
There are several chemical owner reports that will be helpful in UNHCEMS:
My Container Locations - Chemical Inventory – Expand the chemical inventory tab to see containers you own and where the inventory team has scanned them across campus. If you move containers to a lab other than what’s shown in UNHCEMS, update the container location UNHCEMS. Email Karrie.Myer@unh.edu for help updating container locations.
In-transition – this report identifies containers the inventory team did not locate during scanning. It is possible these containers were consumed or disposed. Review these items and provide updates on disposition. More inforamtion can be found in the Frequently Asked Questions section below.
Our inventory team will leave a calling card on your lab door when the inventory is complete.
We will verify inventory by Building. An approximate weekly schedule is included below and is subject to change.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the in-transition report?
The In-transition report shows chemical containers that UNHCEMS thought should be on campus, but the inventory team was unable to find the containers and they were not scanned. Often in-transition containers are consumables that have not properly been marked Empty in UNHCEMS. OEHS expects chemical owners to review these In-Transit reports to properly assign chemical container disposition.
How do I resolve in-transition inventory?
The chemical owner may edit the chemical record in UNHCEMS. Possible chemical record changes include:
Mark Empty – if the In-transition container has been used up or disposed – please mark the container record empty
Container Verified by Lab Occupants - In some cases, the inventory team may miss a cabinet or drawer, or a single container during the scanning process. Click Activate Container in Container Information and Date Verified field. If the chemical owner identifies in-transit materials are present, you may reach out to Karrie.Myer@unh.edu to have the area re-scanned and the record updated in UNHCEMS.
My door sign is inaccurate, how do I update it?
Go to the UNHCEMS Signs Module – Review My Door Signs and follow the instructions to update. If you have a lab with no sign listed, contact Karrie.Myer@unh.edu.
My lab staff cannot access my inventory or mark inventory empty, how do I fix this?
In UNHCEMS – navigate to your Profile and click Add Colleagues. Follow the screen prompts to assign users and roles.
UNHCEMS shows that I own chemicals in a building I don’t work in or a lab that’s not mine. How do correct this?
