The Boulder County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) works with the community to identify industrial hazardous materials and keep the community informed of the potential risk. All companies that have certain types and quantities of hazardous chemicals must report annually to the LEPC. If the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires your company to keep a Safety Data Sheet (SDS, formerly Material Safety Data Sheet, or MSDS) on file for any chemicals stored or used in the workplace, and the chemical(s) is stored in quantities equal to or greatest than the Threshold Planning Quantity (TPQ) for that chemical, then you must report it. The public is encouraged to participate in the process. For more information about the Boulder County LEPC, contact the Boulder Office of Emergency Management at (303) 441-3390.
