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 premier, hands-on reference for people dealing with hazardous chemicals, Hazardous Chemicals Desk Reference, Sixth Edition describes 5,800 of the most important and potentially hazardous chemicals, including many new entries. Like previous editions, it includes:

  • Chemical Safety Profiles that provide a quick overview of the hazards, synonyms, and physical properties of the chemicals

  • Government agency standards and recommendations for handling each chemical

  • Three cross-indices so users can find a material by its Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) number, a synonym for the material, or the DOT Guide Number

Judiciously edited to include the chemicals used today and organized to provide a quick reference for individuals seeking a concise summary of a chemical's hazards, this is the core reference for industrial hygienists, environmental safety professionals, fire safety professionals, toxicologists, safety officers, plant managers, emergency planners, students, and others who need to know the properties of hazardous chemicals.
