Description

Available through CCInfo Databases, CHEMINFO provides comprehensive, summarized occupational health and safety information on chemicals. Produced by CCOHS occupational health and safety specialists, each chemical profile uses non-technical language to describe potential workplace hazards and control measures.

Each profile provides a detailed evaluation of health, fire and reactivity hazards, as well as recommendations on topics such as handling and storage, personal protective equipment, accidental release, first aid, and hazard classifications, including WHMIS, OSHA and the European Union (EU).

Records are designed for use by health and safety professionals, employees working with chemicals, users and writers of Material Safety Data Sheets, firefighters, and other emergency response personnel.
