  • Contents

This Handbook was planned to be the most complete and comprehensive resource in the field of chemical health and safety. It will be the single most useful text on issues related to chemical safety. It is intended to replace many texts on the subject and be the first place any chemist, chemical hygiene officer, or safety specialist will look for answers. This reference was prepared by subject matter experts and will be the most up-to-date treatment of the subject available. It is the broadest and most complete resource available in the field.

This valuable reference will be the starting point for any chemical safety study, providing complete information and guidance. It will provide the reader with the tools necessary to create and maintain a safe work environment. It will contain the answers to both simple and complex questions related to workplace and environmental laws and regulations. It will be the most useful training tool available to the safety professional to ensure compliance in the ever-changing regulatory world.

This Handbook provides information on proper chemical equipment handling. Guidance on purchasing, storage, use, and disposal is presented in easy-to-understand terms. It includes useful examples of each of these items. The safe use of specialized equipment is outlined and the most current technology described.
