The Chemical Gazette is a monthly publication including information on recent industrial chemical assessments, relevant legislative changes and NICNAS Registration. The Chemical Gazette is a special edition of the existing periodic series of the Commonwealth Government Gazette. It is published on the NICNAS website on the first Tuesday of each month.
Search citations & abstracts for key information on hazards encountered by laboratory workers in all fields including R&D, analytical & hospital laboratories, scanned from the primary scientific and trade literature worldwide.
Toxnet has moved. As part of a broader NLM reorganization, most of NLM's toxicology information services have been integrated into other NLM products and services, for example chemical information is available via ChemIDPlus, toxicology literature via TOXLINE, comprehensive toxicology information via HSDB in PubChem. See the TOXNET landing page for more information.
Uniquely designed to accompany students throughout their four-year undergraduate education and beyond, progressively teaching them the skills and knowledge they need to learn their science and stay safe while working in any lab [MyiLibrary]
Widely regarded as the reference work in this field — an assembly of all reported risks such as explosion, fire, toxic or high-energy events that result from chemical reactions gone astray, with extensive referencing to the primary literature. [MyiLibrary]
This international journal includes the sections & subject fields: Persistent Organic Pollutants and Dioxins, which is devoted to all scientific aspects of persistent organic pollutants, including monitoring studies in the environment, ecosystem, and people; environmental chemistry; toxicology; epidemiologic investigations; risk assessment; and processes that generate these pollutants and measures to reduce their emissions or concentrations in the environment.
The Journal of Hazardous Materials publishes full length research papers, reviews, and case studies which improve our understanding of the hazards and risks certain materials pose to people and the environment
Addresses such topics as incident investigations/case histories, hazardous chemicals management, hazardous leaks prevention, risk assessment, process hazards evaluation, industrial hygiene, fire and explosion analysis, preventive maintenance, vapor cloud dispersion, and regulatory compliance, training, education, and other areas in process safety and loss prevention, including emerging concerns like plant and/or process security. Papers from the annual Loss Prevention Symposium and other AIChE safety conferences are automatically considered for publication, but unsolicited papers, particularly those addressing process safety issues in emerging technologies and industries are encouraged and evaluated equally.
This blog covers chemical safety issues in academic & industrial research labs and in manufacturing. It is intended to be a forum for exchange & discussion of lab and plant safety & accident information without the fanfare of a news article.
Written primarily by C&EN associate editor Jyllian Kemsley and safety consultant Russ Phifer, the blog also includes contributions from other C&EN staff writers as well as health and safety experts in academia, industry, and government.
A non-punitive accident investigation authority, looking for systemic failures, including an investigation into the Texas Tech University Chemistry Lab Explosion. With coverage of management issues relevant to all types of hazards, one can learn a lot from their reports.
NICNAS aids in the protection of the Australian people and the environment by finding out the risks to occupational health and safety, to public health and to the environment that could be associated with the importation, manufacture or use of industrial chemicals, and by maintaining a national standard for cosmetic products.
Scheduling is a classification system that controls how medicines and chemicals are accessible to consumers. Medicines and chemicals are grouped into Schedules according to the appropriate level of regulatory control over their availability (e.g. Schedule 4 - medicines available only by prescription; Schedule 2 - medicines available over the counter in pharmacies).
