This Pocket Guide is the latest available scientific information on industrial hygiene for workers, employers, and occupational health professionals. The NIOSH Pocket Guide is a handy spiral-bound 5-1/4 x 7-1/2 field manual. The guide continues to be an important reference for first responders to safety and disaster situations.

Changes that were made for this edition of the Pocket Guide include:

       New size -- Individual tables for each chemical

       Recommendations for particulate respirators

       Synonym and Trade Name index expanded to include the primary chemical name

       ID numbers and Guide numbers reflect changes made by the Department of Transportation in the 2004 Emergency Response Guidebook

Life-saving guidance presents key information for 677 chemicals or substance groupings that are found in the work environment and is presented in tabular form to provide a quick, convenient source of general industrial hygiene practices. The information in the Pocket Guide includes:

       Chemical structure or formulas

       Identification codes, synonyms, trade names

       Exposure limits

       Chemical and physical properties

       Personal Protection/Sanitation

       Incompatibilities and reactivities
