NIOSH Releases Mobile App for Chemical Hazards Guide

Washington – NIOSH has created a mobile app to accompany its Pocket Guide on Chemical Hazards.

Containing more than 600 chemical entries and appendices, the app allows users to search by chemical name or synonym, as well as DOT, CAS or RTECS numbers. Information also can be marked as a “favorite” for future reference, according to NIOSH.

“The development of this app takes us into the 21st century world of knowledge dissemination and allows quicker access to information that can keep workers safer on the job,” NIOSH Director John Howard said in a July 14 press release.

The Pocket Guide on Chemical Hazards, which has been in print for more than 40 years, provides information on workplace chemicals and associated hazards.
