New Tool From OSHA for HAZMAT Responders

Posted on October 20, 2018 at 2:25 PM

A new tool in the tool box for anyone dealing with hazardous materials is the new online chemical database that has been launched by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. This electronic database allows users to search for chemicals by CAS number, name, or even partial names. When you select a chemical, you find information that has been complied via multiple sources and even links to outside organizations and their chemical libraries.


Most importantly, for the responder, it lists vital information on each chemical such as the boiling and melting points, physical properties, exposure limits, IDLH information, and upper and lower explosive limits.

This resource is free to the public and a great reach back and identification tool. You can access it at www.osha.gov/chemicaldata
