Need to have a completed Hazardous Chemicals Purchasing Form with the purchase request.  If this form is completed, then confirmation regarding purchase is not required from RSPhys WHS staff.  If there are any queries, please contact the end user/supervisor in the first instance, then RSPhys WHS staff.
  2. Need to confirm that the chemical is listed in ChemWatch in the correct quantity and location.  Double checking sections C & D in the form.
