Guia de Bolso para Riscos Químicos – NIOSH – POCKET GUIDE TO CHEMICAL HAZARDS – PDF
The NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards presents information taken from the NIOSH/OSHA Occupational Health Guidelines for Chemical Hazards, from National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) criteria documents and Current Intelligence Bulletins, and from recognized references in the fields of industrial hygiene, occupational medicine, toxicology, and analytical chemistry.
The information is presented in tabular form to provide a quick, convenient source of information on general industrial hygiene practices.
The information in the Pocket Guide includes chemical structures or formulas, identification codes, synonyms, exposure limits, chemical and physical properties, incompatibilities and reactivities, measurement methods, respirator selections, signs and symptoms of exposure, and procedures for emergency treatment.
The information assembled in the original 1978 printing of the Pocket Guide was the result of the Standards Completion Program, a joint effort by NIOSH and the Department of Labor to develop supplemental requirements for the approximately 380 workplace environmental exposure standards adopted by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in 1971.
The Pocket Guide has been designed to provide chemical-specific data to supplement general industrial hygiene knowledge.
Individual tables for each chemical present this data in the Chemical Listing section (page 1).
To maximize the amount of data provided in the limited space in these tables, abbreviations and codes have been used extensively.
These abbreviations and codes, which have been designed to permit rapid comprehension by the regular user, are discussed for each field in these chemical tables in the following subsections.
