Job hazard assessments


There are a significant number of Occupational Safety and Health Agency, or OSHA, regulations that apply to facilities maintenance operations, and any construction or remodeling activities. To assist ASU Facilities Development and Management staff with compliance with these regulations, and to ensure that best practices are followed, EHS has developed several general safety program guidance documents for use by ASU employees who work in facilities maintenance operations and similar positions. Examples are below and include a brief description and a link to the document. Employees working in laboratories or offices should review guidance available on those websites.

We are available to assist with safety and health complaints including concerns related to lab and shop safety, indoor air quality, workstation set up, and general safety concerns. Please email EHS or call 480-965-1823 for assistance.

Shop registration

Shops are required to be registered on an annual basis using one of the options below. The shop supervisor or their designee completes the registration process. If you are new shop supervisor or registering a shop for the first time, you must register your shop using the paper forms.

Register your shop using paper forms

The shop supervisor or their designee submits a Shop Registration form along with a chemical inventory. Chemical inventories need to include quantities and some basic information. Signage related to the registration will be sent to the shop supervisor or their designee for posting at the shop. The shop registration sign provides important reference information in the event EHS or Emergency Response personnel must enter the shop or contact you in the event of an emergency. Chemical inventory forms must be in .xlsx or .xls file format.

The sheets below provide information and references to specific requirements of existing ASU EHS programs, contain essential health and safety information and provide answers to general compliance questions. Supervisors are expected to familiarize themselves with the sheets below that are specific to the work areas they supervise. Each fact sheet summarizes specific policy requirements, outlines the required information for supervisor responsibilities and provides quick references to applicable federal, state and university policy.
