Media reviews
With 70,000 chemicals in use daily and 500-1000 chemicals added yearly, data on their safe handling and use are critical. This book provides much of that information. [...] One is impressed by the amount of information and advice provided by the authors. In my opinion, it is an excellent book. Gary F. Bennett in JOURNAL OF HAZARDOUS MATERIALS (2003) "The goal of this handbook... is to provide a source of rapid information to help in the safe use and disposal of chemicals." JOURNAL OF HAZARDOUS MATERIALS "Every health and safety practitioner should have a copy of this handbook as it is not simply of value to those working in the chemical and related industries, it is also of value to those studying for advanced health and safety qualifications." SAFETY & HEALTH PRACTITIONER The book is a useful text and will be a valuable addition to the bookshelves of chemists, engineers, occupational and environmental health practitioners, waste handlers, safety officers and representatives, health care professionals, and students. - ENERGY SOURCES, VOL 26, 2004
