Hazardous Materials Management Plan

This program outlines requirements for the management of hazardous materials and the disposal of hazardous waste at University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo (UH Hilo). These requirements are based on federal, state and county regulations. Adherence to this program will ensure the proper management of hazardous materials and hazardous wastes, reduce overall costs (by reducing disposal cost and minimizing the use of hazardous materials), and avoid potential civil and/or criminal liabilities. This plan is applicable only to the UH Hilo main campus. Failure to comply with these requirements may subject UH Hilo and/or individuals to fines and civil or criminal prosecution.
