Abstract
A technique for objectively assessing the potential health risk due to chemical exposure in the workplace was described. Computer algorithms used to combine information in NIOSH data files to rank to order chemicals by considering toxicologic properties and numbers of workers exposed are discussed. Their use in producing indices of the potential health risk encountered by workers in specific industries and occupations arising from chemical exposure are described. Five indices are identified and appropriate algorithms are defined with examples of typical index pages.
