Compliance Inspection Reports

Self-Conducted Compliance Inspections

In an effort to be proactive in maintaining compliance with OSHA standards, the Department of Safety and Security conducts unscheduled walk-throughs of labs and shops for Trades and Industry programs, Applied and Physical Science programs, and our health programs.  Results of those inspections can be found by clicking here (TBD).

Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)/Safety Data Sheets (SDS)

St. Cloud Technical and Community College (SCTCC) currently maintains MSDS’s/SDS’s for each hazardous chemical using electronic access with a company called SiteHawk. This MSDS/SDS’s system ensures that they are readily accessible during each work shift to employees and students when they are in their work area(s).

In conjunction with the Minnesota State, SCSU and many other schools will be switching to a new company called MSDSonline®.  

Links are provided below for access to each of the systems.
