In the management of chemical substances, it is important not only to comply with laws and regulations but also to adequately evaluate risks and promote voluntarily management of Chemicals. On that account, it is necessary to collect wide-ranging information on laws and regulations and risks in the workplace.
The SDS HazCom Library collects various types of information on Chemical Substances and their Risks.
Use the full-text search environment to perform a comprehensive analysis of the Safety Data Sheet Information, Laws, Regulations, and Toxicology of the chemicals that exist in your environment.
The Safety Data Sheets are organized by Industry or Hazards associated with Jobs or Manufacturing. The Chemical Risk and Toxic Information is obtained primarily from the following:
Access to msdshazcomonline.com website is provided free of charge over the Internet.
Companies and Universities can purchase a subset of the SDS Hazcom Library to run offline on a mobile drive or via a private Intranet.
The SDS HazCom Library includes over 800,000 Safety Data Sheets and data from the following sources:
In addition to infectious disease, ergonomic, and workplace violence issues, workers in healthcare settings encounter a number of other workplace hazards. These include chemicals (e.g., sterilants), hazardous drugs (e.g., antineoplastic drugs), materials that cause allergic reactions (e.g., latex), and physical agents (e.g., radiation). Several common examples of Chemical Hazards are:
ChemIDplus at http://chem.sis.nlm.nih.gov/chemidplus/chemidlite.jsp is a free, web search system that provides access to the structure and nomenclature authority files used for the identification of chemical substances cited in National Library of Medicine (NLM) databases, including the TOXNET® system. ChemIDplus also has structure searching and direct links to resources at NLM, federal agencies, U.S states, and scientific sites. The database contains more than 400,000 chemical records, of which over 300,000 include chemical structures.
Substance Registry Services (SRS) is the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) central system for information about substances that are tracked or regulated by EPA or other sources.
It is the authoritative resource for basic information about chemicals, biological organisms, and other substances of interest to EPA and its state and tribal partners.
The SRS makes it possible to identify which EPA data systems, environmental statutes, or other sources have information about a substance and which synonym is used by that system or statute. It becomes possible therefore to map substance data across EPA programs regardless of synonym.
The system provides a common basis for identification of, and information about:
HSDB is a toxicology data file on the National Library of Medicine's (NLM) Toxicology Data Network (TOXNET®). It focuses on the toxicology of potentially hazardous chemicals. It is enhanced with information on human exposure, industrial hygiene, emergency handling procedures, environmental fate, regulatory requirements, nanomaterials, and related areas. All data are referenced and derived from a core set of books, government documents, technical reports and selected primary journal literature. HSDB is peer-reviewed by the Scientific Review Panel (SRP), a committee of experts in the major subject areas within the data bank's scope. HSDB is organized into individual chemical records, and contains over 5000 such records.
