Editorial Reviews

International Resources Guide to Hazardous Chemicals: Manufacturers, Agencies, Organizations, and Sources of Information's the companion to Sittig's Handbook of Toxic and Hazardous Chemicals and Carcinogens, 4th edition. Hazardous chemicals listed in Sittig are the basis of this book. "This book is intended for chemists, toxicologists, laboratory technicians, manufacturers, safety professionals and government personnel involved in environmental and industrial safety and health matters."

The resource is divided into eight sections. Section 1 is the largest section and takes up half the book. You will find an alphabetical list of hazardous chemicals and their manufacturers names. It also lists the country of the manufacturer if not made in the U.S.

Section 2 (International Directory of Manufacturers of Hazardous Chemicals) is an alphabetical list by country of chemical names and their manufacturer. Each entry includes address, phone, fax, email, and website. It may also include parent company, subsidiaries/affiliates and stock listing.

Sections 3 (International Chemical Industry Organizations), Section 4 (Professional Environmental Health and Industrial Hygiene Organizations) and Section 5 (International Environmental Protection Agencies) are all organized alphabetically by country and list organization or agency name, address, phone, fax, email, and website. Some entries include a brief description of the organization. Only federal agencies are listed for the United States in Section 5.

Section 6 (State Environmental, Health and Occupational Safety Agencies) is organized by state or U.S. territory and includes agency name, address, phone, fax, email, and website.

Section 7 lists Hotlines, Databases, and Useful Web Sites. The hotlines appear to be U.S.and Canadian only. Hotline or database name, responsible organization, hotline number, email, website and organization descriptions are listed. Useful websites include those from .com, .edu, .org, and .gov websites. Many of the listed hotlines from federal agencies. Many database listings include contact phone numbers, which is a great feature.

Section 8 (Poison Control Centers) is organized by state and lists organization name, address, emergency phone number or hotline, and the area served. The book also includes an index.

This is an excellent resource. It is very easy to use and includes quality sources. It will serve as a nice jumping point for further research. This reviewer gives International Resources Guide to Hazardous Chemicals: Manufacturers, Agencies, Organizations, and Sources of Information an enthusiastic recommendation to all libraries concerned with environmental and chemical safety issues.
