Overview

The indispensable resource for health professionals on potentially unsafe chemicals—now fully updated
Proctor and Hughes' Chemical Hazards of the Workplace, Fifth Edition provides a comprehensive reference text for health professionals who need toxicology data on chemicals that may be encountered in various work settings. Building on the success of the Fourth Edition-already a standard text-this new edition updates and revises the more than 600 entries of that text, and also adds monographs on new compounds.
Introductory chapters cover toxicological concepts, clinical manifestations of exposure, the diagnosis of occupational disease, and industrial hygiene aspects of chemical exposures. The rest of the text consists of more than 625 alphabetically arranged entries on individual compounds, each of which includes:
* Chemical formula
* CAS number
* 2003 ACGIH (American Conference of Government Industrial Hygienists) threshold limit value
* Synonyms
* Physical properties
* Sources of exposure
* Routes of exposure
* Toxicological data
The toxicological data includes both acute and chronic effects, especially as related to any known exposure levels. The data emphasizes human studies and cases over animal data whenever sufficient information is available, and addresses any known carcinogenic, mutagenic, fetotoxic, or other reproductive effects. Clinical information is presented in a succinct narrative form to aid in understanding.
Easy to use, in-depth, and comprehensive, Proctor and Hughes' Chemical Hazards of the Workplace, Fifth Edition offers occupational health physicians, nurses, industrial hygienists, and other safety professionals an invaluable and up-to-date resource.

"Among the new areas of coverage are current NIOSH recommendations for OSHA standards, exposure to neurotoxic agents, fundamentals of risk assessment, & industrial hygiene issues."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“ … (this book) is a bit of a rare beast in that it is actually an easy-to-read reference book written in a narrative form.”  (Health & Safety at Work, July 2005)

"A good medical, university or special library serving safety professionals or students of these fields will want to have all of these reference works available for their patrons, and that includes the Proctor and Hughes." (E-STREAMS, January 2005)

"...users of this reference may rely on this book to be the 'health' tile in a comprehensive chemical health and safety mosaic." (Facilities Manager, February 2005)

"This book provides clinical information emphasizing human studies and cases rather than animal data whenever possible." (Industrial Hygiene News, January 2005)

“…a substantial and well-organized text…” (Journal of Applied Toxicology, Vol24.No.6, November/ December 2004)

“…(a) detailed book…explained in terms that are easily understood”. (Health & Safety Review, Vol.9, No.8, October 2004)

"…an excellent and easy-to-use reference.” (Chemical Health & Safety, September-October 2004)

"Health professionals should be pleased to have this updated volume available." (Vet Human Toxicology, 46 (4) August 2004)

Booknews
The dates of the first two editions are not stated, but enough time has elapsed to require that the third add nearly 100 chemicals (bringing the total to 542), update chapters and data, and expand tables and appendices. Among the new areas of coverage: current NIOSH recommendations for OSHA standards, risk assessment, industrial hygiene issues, treatment protocols for poisoning due to cyanogens and cholinesterase inhibitors. Each description covers chemical formula, CAS number, Threshold Limit Value, physical properties, uses, route of exposure, toxicological details, carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, and fetotoxicity.
