Hazardous Chemicals Desk Reference, Fourth Edition, Richard J. Lewis, Sr.
For industrial hygienists, chemists, toxicologists, safety professionals, and emergency response personnel, Richard Lewis?s quick reference has become standard equipment?a convenient, authoritative resource offering fast, reliable answers to urgent questions about hazardous chemical substances. The fourth edition is the most informative and insightful Desk Reference yet. Meticulously compiled and revised, it provides the most current and useful data available on more than 6,000 compounds commonly used in industry, manufacturing, laboratories, and the workplace. Created from the database established for the new Sax?s Dangerous Properties of Industrial Materials, 9th Edition, Hazardous Chemicals Desk Reference presents expanded Essential Safety Profiles for each chemical, assessing its hazardous potential as a poison, irritant, corrosive, explosive, or carcinogen. Each entry in the Fourth Edition offers

  • A 1-to-3 hazard rating quickly indentifying danger levels
  • All synonyms for each chemical, including alternative chemical names, common generic names, foreign names, and codes used as parts of trademarks
  • CAS, NIOSH, and POT numbers for conclusive chemical indentification
  • Chemical/physical property summaries focused to facilitate safe handling and storage of substances
  • Standards and recommendations from OSHA, ACGIH, DFG MAK, NIOSH REL, DOT and other agencies to insure safety and regulatory compliance
  • Consensus reports from Who and other international bodies, providing additional insights and information
Hazardous Chemicals Desk Reference will benefit anyone who works with and/or evaluates drugs, food additive preservatives, ores, pesticides, dyes, detergents, lubricants, soaps, plastics, and other potentially harmful substances. By providing summaries (rather than encyclopedic reviews) and by organizing information in easy-to-access formats, it is perfectly suited for quick review or for use on-site, where unforeseen situations necessitate fast, accurate responses.

From the Back Cover:

The authoritative guide to hazardous chemicals, completely revised and updated

The Fifth Edition of Hazardous Chemicals Desk Reference contains Safety Profiles, synonyms, physical properties, standards, and recommendations of government agencies for approximately 5,000 chemicals deemed both important and potentially hazardous by the international scientific community. Substances were chosen on the basis of meeting a variety of criteria, including:
* Having an OSHA standard
* Having an ACGIH TLV
* Listed by the International Agency for Research on Cancer Groups

1 through 4 assessments
* Listed on the NTP Ninth Report on Carcinogens
* Having a German Research Society's Mak or Bat listing
* Having especially dangerous toxic, reactive, or fire properties

The data for each entry is taken from the master file of DPIM. The Fifth Edition distinguishes itself from its predecessors by including the very latest information from a variety of international databases and organizations, while deleting entries that have proven to be the least pertinent to practitioners. As with previous incarnations, the organization of contents places a premium on providing a quick reference for individuals seeking a concise summary of a chemical's hazards. The Desk Reference remains the premier resource on hazardous chemicals for students, professors, scientists, engineers, and all professionals whose work involves managing these materials.
