The NPG helps users recognize and control workplace chemical hazards. NIOSH offers four versions of the NPG: print, online, PDF, and mobile web app. Enter search terms separated by spaces. We conducted a study to determine the chemical exposures associated with the clandestine manufacture of methamphetamine. Levels of hydrocarbons, phosphine, iodine, and inorganic acids were unremarkable in these inactive laboratories. Based on our study, individuals entering a suspected clandestine methamphetamine laboratory should wear chemically resistant protective clothing and use a self-contained breathing apparatus.

This chapter describes the potential public health impact of chemical and contaminating events. Exposure to chemicals can result from industrial accidents, transportation accidents, or intentional or terrorist incidents. Multiple systems have been established to determine and communicate the toxicity of chemicals for easy identification during an emergency when immediate life safety measures must be taken. Toxicity is related to exposure over time, and safe levels need to be understood in context in order to gauge toxicity, manage a response, and determine safety upon reentry into an area that may have been evacuated. Public messages must be delivered in order to ensure that safe sheltering or evacuation measures are taken and to assure long-term safety.

Public health may also be responsible for establishing a registry of those exposed to certain chemicals and providing continued postexposure health monitoring. The public health and medical response to chemical incidents relies heavily upon the cooperation of industry and citizens before, during, and after a disaster. List the physical, physiological, and environmental factors influencing exposures. Recognize the various systems used to classify and label chemical threats.
