Abstract
The Guide is intended as a source of general industrial hygiene information for workers, employers, and occupational health professionals. The Pocket Guide presents key information and data in abbreviated tabular form for 677 chemicals or substance groupings (e.g., manganese compounds, tellurium compounds, inorganic tin compounds, etc.) that are found in the work environment. The industrial hygiene information found in the Pocket Guide should help users recognize and control occupational chemical hazards. The chemicals or substances contained in this revision include all substances for which the national Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has recommended exposure limits (RELs) and those with permissible exposure limits (PELs) as found in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) General Industry Air Contaminants Standards (29 CFR 1910.1000). The data were collected from a variety of sources, including NIOSH policy documents such as criteria documents and Current Intelligence Bulletins (CIBs), and recognized references in the fields of industrial hygiene, occupational medicine, toxicity, and analytical chemistry. The Guide is intended as a source of general industrial hygiene information quick and convenient for workers, employers, and occupational health professionals. It includes chemical structures or formulas, identification codes, synonyms, exposure limits, chemical and physical properies, incompatibilities and reactivies, measurement method, recommended repirator selections, signs and symptoms of exposure, and procedures for emergency treatment.
