OSHA launches database of workplace chemical information
Washington — A new database from OSHA offers access to safety profiles and information on workplace chemicals.
Pooling data from various government agencies and organizations, the OSHA Occupational Chemical Database lists chemical identification, physical properties, permissible exposure limits, sampling information and additional resources for each substance.
OSHA calls the webpage its “premier one-stop shop for occupational chemical information.”
Users can search chemicals by name or identification number and group them by PEL, carcinogenic level, or immediately dangerous to life and health air concentration value.
