Chemical Inventory

Risk and Safety Solutions (RSS) is a new system for chemical inventory management – see Chemical Inventory. EH&S is initiating migration to the new system by conducting an initial chemical inventory of all labs at USC. Research groups will receive Welcome Kits that feature helpful information, tutorials, and links to acquaint them with RSS.

How to Login

Login to RSS via Shibboleth using your USC Net ID Username and Password.

Personnel and Locations

Add personnel or locations to your account in RSS.

Lab Hazard Assessment

Update your Lab Hazard Assessment (LHAT). Once you have completed your LHAT, recommended PPE and Practices are generated. Click on any PPE item to see the specific conditions for proper use.


Inspection reports, findings, and resolutions shall be primarily handled within the RSS application. Responsible Parties (PIs & Lab Managers) will receive email notifications when:

  • Inspection is submitted
  • Comment are added to a finding
  • A finding item becomes overdue

Lab Door Sign

Create and print door signs for labs and storage areas that contain chemicals. Remember to update your chemical inventory annually or when significant changes in chemical volume or type occur.
