Worker-Inspired Safer Chemicals Database Launched

Workers wanting safer workplaces now have a new tool to help them: the ChemHAT (Chemical Hazard and Alternatives Toolkit) database. The free, online database was designed in consultation with workers who deal with hazardous chemicals every day. The ChemHAT database allows workers to quickly search 10,000 commonly used chemicals and see their acute and chronic health effects. In the near future, the database will provide the ability for users to identify safer alternatives to the chemicals they are using. The BlueGreen Alliance will host a webinar on the ChemHAT database on September, 25, 2012 at 12:30 p.m. EDT, the webinar registration link is below.
