EHSA

EHSA is a web based comprehensive research safety management system that allows faculty and staff to access one portal to view safety information about their work areas and complete various tasks. After using GT Authentication to log in, researchers can view their chemical, laser, x-ray, and radioactive material inventory. They can register new lab personnel, respond to lab inspections, and view lab personnel training history.

Lab or Area personnel can manage their lab’s chemical inventory to include entering new chemicals, generating waste labels, and requesting waste pick-ups.

An online BMSC protocol submission form is available for work with biological/infectious material.

There are several additional features of EHSA that will be implemented in the near future, such as online protocol submission for IBC and RSC.

To assist in using the features of EHSA, we have developed an EHSA User Handbook. This Handbook provides step by step instructions on how to complete several tasks as a lab user or PI and additional items that a Chair/Director can access.

Fall 2017 Reconciliation Information

Chemical reconciliation for Fall Semester will be due by Thursday, DECEMBER 21st at 11:59 PMDue to some technical difficulties, we have extended the inventory reconciliation for the Fall Semester. By this deadline, all chemical reconciliation reports need to be uploaded into EHSA.

We will submit the GT campus Inventory Report to Board of Regents shortly after (required by Georgia law). We strongly encourage labs to start submitting the report via EHSA system as soon as possible.

Furthermore, EHS offers RECONCILIATION DAY ASSISTANCE at your building. During that day, EHS will visit your building (9am – 3pm) and help you with all reconciliation questions. All meetings would be consultations, not lab inspections. Feel free to contact us and schedule an appointment.​
