A host of chemical substances have become essential parts of human activities and requirements for societal development. Any kind of misuse and/or negligence in handling these substances can cause health disorders, poisoning, and fatalities among unprotected workers and members of the public exposed to contaminated food, water, and air. Carefully organized for ease of use, Handbook of Chemicals and Safety provides a tool for the management of a range of chemical substances commonly used, handled, stored, transported, and disposed of as wastes. Written in an accessible style with just the right amount of technical rigor, the book covers: General fundamentals and specific hazards and effects of chemical substances The basics of exposures and responses to chemical substances in the work environment Toxic responses in different body systems General perspective on the problem of chemical exposures and the possible health effects The author includes substances such as industrial solvents, pesticides, metals, air pollutants, toxic gases, drugs, and other items. He supplies the chemical abstract system (CAS) number, IUPAC name, molecular formula, synonyms and trade names, use and exposure, toxicity and health effects, and carcinogen factors. He also includes information on exposure limits, methods of proper storage, and waste disposal. An important reference on exposure to different categories of chemical substances, the book stresses the importance of preparedness in any safety program. Taking a broad and interdisciplinary approach to chemicals and workplace safety, it provides guidance on the judicious management of chemical substances.

The first book of its kind, Handbook of Chemical Regulations: Benchmarking, Implementation, and Engineering Concepts introduces the concept of global harmonization and interlinks between regulations and examines the reasons behind major requirements for chemical manufacture, article production, and distribution, importation, and usage. A compendium of environmental, health and safety, and engineering concepts for global harmonization, the book provides a road map between regulations from the European Union, the United States, and other countries who adopt similar regulations. As with any road map, not every feature along the road is mapped; however, what is shown are the markers leading to a point where more effective stewardship of your industrial development and chemical usage base is possible. The book discusses the Eurpoean Union’s Regulation (EC) No 1907/ 2006 - Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), the Eurpean Union’ s Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 for classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures, and the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) perspectives for Safety Data Sheet (SDS) development and product labeling. In addition, the United States Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) and Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) are presented as regards TSCA new substance review critiera and FIFRA required labeling. This compendium of information aids in the successful integration and implementation of the regulatory requirements—an integration that should lead to more efficient and effective business decisions. Rather than reacting to one regulation at a time, making policy decisions that reflect the underlying conceptual framework of GHS will lead to safer products and safer industrial production sites. Based on a framework for regulatory standards, this easy-to-read guide helps you understand the scientific concepts that are inherent in chemical usage and their interplay globally.

This new edition of the critically acclaimed Handbook of Laboratory Health and Safety was designed to help safety officers, laboratory managers, principal investigators, and laboratory workers bring lab health and safety into the twenty-first century. It does this by presenting a timely, complete, and easy-to-implement approach to ensuring a workplace that is safe for its workers as well as the surrounding community. Further, the handbook lays out guidelines to help laboratories comply with the requirements set by OSHA, the EPA, FDA, DOT, DEA, and other relevant regulatory agencies. While the overall philosophy that made the first edition so successful has remained the same, the book has been extensively revised and updated to reflect all new regulations and technical advances that have occurred in the field over the past five years. In addition, this Second Edition now features a multitude of sample forms, checklists, protocols, and other valuable documents that will become an indispensable part of any laboratory health and safety management program. A valuable reference tool for those seeking detailed information and guidance on specific safety and health issues, Handbook of Laboratory Health and Safety, Second Edition is also much more. By providing a set of clear, easy-to-follow guidelines that serve as a rational framework for creating site-specific health and safety requirements, it, in effect, arms laboratory managers with a solid foundation upon which to build--or reengineer--a comprehensive program for identifying, managing, and controlling health and safety hazards in the laboratory. All of the authors' recommended guidelines are clearly presented in the section entitled "Suggested Laboratory Health and Safety Guidelines." Each chapter of the handbook refers to the relevant sections of the Suggested Guidelines, explains the basis for the recommendations, and provides guidance on how to comply. Offering a feasible, easily implemented approach to designing and maintaining a safe workplace, Handbook of Laboratory Health and Safety is an indispensable tool for all those responsible for safeguarding the health and safety of lab workers and the residents of the ambient community. "R. Scott Stricoff...and Douglas B. Walters...have assembled information from a variety of sources that is not easily available elsewhere....This is a useful book." -- Chemical & Engineering News "...provides a useful contribution and will be a welcome addition to the laboratory safety adviser's library....the authors' breadth of knowledge and expertise gives a genuine sense of authority to the information given." -- Chemistry and Industry "...useful for laboratory managers and safety officers who are in charge of the safety of workplaces, but it is also useful for laboratory architects and designers, supervisors, and others in charge of planning safe laboratories. Employees will also find information on the handling of toxic samples and chemicals....Although the book follows American standards and regulations, its interest may be considered worldwide. The book is especially useful in practical safety work because it explains thoroughly how to build a safe and pleasant laboratory and how to maintain its safety." -- Scandinavian Journal of Work Environment and Health

There have been many volumes written that claim to be the most "comprehensive" compendium or handbook on chemical data. These wieldy volumes are often too big and extraneous to be useful to the practicing engineer. This new volume aims to be the most useful "go to" volume for the working engineer, scientist, or chemist who needs quick answers to daily questions about materials or chemicals and doesn't want to go on long searches through voluminous tomes or lengthy internet searches. Covering only the most commonly used chemicals in the most important processes in industry, A Guide to Safe Material and Chemical Handling includes industrial chemicals, such as gases, fuels, and water, which are not incorporated in most "comprehensive" books on materials and chemical properties. Safety plans and procedures that can be implemented by any engineer or plant manager by following the easy, step-by-step instructions in the book are also provided.
