EH&S has established the HazMat Emergency Response Program to provide 24-hour emergency response support to campus and satellite locations. The HazMat Responder is an EH&S specialist who is available seven days a week, 24 hours a day, to provide technical assistance to campus units, UC Police Department (UCPD) and the San Francisco Fire Department (SFFD). The HazMat Responder operates a vehicle equipped with a cellular phone and emergency response equipment and will respond to all requests for emergency support, either by telephone or in person.

The HazMat Emergency Response Program complements existing campus policy which specifies that supervisors and Principal Investigators are responsible for the clean up of a minor spill. In addition, supervisors and Principal Investigators are responsible for initial and annual training of their staff for hazardous materials handling, use, and spill clean up procedures.
