Information Regarding New RTK Online Submittal System and Database
As part of NJ Right to Know (RTK) requirements, the University is required to electronically submit annual surveys of hazardous chemicals to the NJ Department of Health. Next year, we will be transitioning to the online system and all submittals must be completed online.
To comply with this regulation, an online hazardous chemical inventory database program has been created. The online program will allow you to:
- Submit your survey
- Access previous submissions
- Easily update previous surveys
- Search the database for specific information, such as quantities and locations of chemicals
This program will also:
- Reduce paper
- Increase reporting efficiency
- Ensure compliance
Each department must designate an account administrator. The administrator will be given access rights to the database and will have the ability to assign additional personnel who can enter data. For example, custodial supervisors can be the administrator and can add all of his/her forepersons or a department administrator can add TA’s or GA’s.
To assist departments with the new system, REHS can provide short training sessions to help your staff become familiar with the database.
The sessions will be approximately 1 hour in length. The training is designed for staff who are responsible for submitting RTK chemical inventories as well as those that have management responsibilities for areas with reportable chemicals. These sessions would be most beneficial for departments with teaching laboratories, Facilities, Housing, Dining and other departments that report chemical inventories. [If your department is mainly research and development laboratories, this session would not be appropriate.]
REHS will also offer sessions in early 2009 to help departments complete next year's survey. Information regarding these sessions will be posted on this site at a later date.
If you have questions or are unable to attend the training on these dates or would like a department specific training, please contact Jennifer Mancini at 848-445-2550 or email@example.com.
