    Question Electronic Reference Material

    I am trying to build a good reference library for our hazmat lap top and bring us into the 21st century. However, it seems everything I can find relies on just the ERG or NIOSH for much of the contained information. Lately I have been concentrating on finding CD versions of the books we carry. Anyone have any good suggestions for what they use? Even a good list of websites would be helpful.

    Dr. Napalm,

    Here are some useful MSDS websites:

    For pesticide info:

    For garden variety household products:

    For gases, Praxair's website pretty much covers them all,

    Dupont has a pretty extensive collection of MSDS's:

    There is the CHRIS manual at http://www.chrismanual.com

    There are a lot of others...I guess it depends on what you are looking for. What kind of books do you carry, and were you looking specifically for stuff that can be downloaded and stored?

    We also use CCINFO, which is expensive, I think it is like 350-400$ for a year, but contains quite a bit of information (http://www.ccohs.ca/). Of course there is CAMEO which you can download for free and has almost as much.

    Hope this helps!

    Default Haz Mat electronic reference

    Here is a good website(www.oreis.org)to order a free CD with the ERG, CHRIS manual and ORIES information. This is especially useful if you have railroads running through your district.

    Also is you don't have it yet, the NFA has a free CD "Hazardous Materials Guide for First Responders CD-ROM" which can be ordered from "http://www.usfa.fema.gov/applications/publications/display"

    CAMEO is also a very good software program and it can be order for free from "http://www.epa.gov/ceppo/cameo/"

    Hopes this helps
