Chemistry Safety, and Hazard Resources
National Toxicology Program
The NTP is an interagency program whose mission is to evaluate agents of public health concern by developing and applying tools of modern toxicology and molecular biology. The program maintains an objective, science-based approach in dealing with critical issues in toxicology and is committed to using the best science available to prioritize, design, conduct, and interpret its studies
NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards (NPG)
The NPG presents key information and data in abbreviated or tabular form for chemicals or substance groupings (e.g. cyanides, fluorides, manganese compounds) that are found in the work environment. The information found in the NPG should help users recognize and control occupational chemical hazards.
Information about pollutants and how local communities compare
Search multiple government databases for information on toxicology, chemical hazards and related topics.
