The use of chemicals in any workplace in the developed world is governed by stringent health, safety and environmental legislation, and companies spend significant amounts of time and money assessing the risks associated with the handling and use of chemicals. In practice, those risk assessments are generally carried out by a range of competent people, be it the corporate safety manager, the R&D chemist or the manufacturing unit manager. This book will guide those personnel in the understanding, interpretation and application of toxicological and ecotoxicological information, supplied on a material safety data sheet, when planning the safe handling and use of chemicals. This volume is directed at corporate health & safety officers and safety managers; R&D chemists; process chemists and engineers, and manufacturing unit managers & supervisors in the pharmaceutical industry and the bulk, fine and specialty chemicals industries.
