This application displays International Chemical Safety Cards [ICSC] produced by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the International Labour Office (ILO), and the World Health Organization (WHO).
ICSCs summarize essential health and safety information on chemicals for their use at the "shop floor" level by workers and employers in factories, agriculture, construction and other work places.
An ICSC is very similar to an Material Safety Data Sheet [MSDS], a standard reference document from the manufacturer for chemical information and is required, for safety purposes, to be kept in any place where workers face possible exposure to those chemicals.
While an MSDS has many positives such as being very thorough and manufacturer specific, there are drawbacks : they can be very lengthy (the MSDS for water is 5 pages long), they have no standard format and may be technically very complex and too extensive for non-management use.
ICSCs, on the other hand, set out peer-reviewed information about substances in a more concise, standard and simple manner on 1 or 2 page documents that is always the same format.
Use the information in this app to augment occupational health and safety when working with the applicable chemicals as an adjunct to MSDS or when MSDS are unavailable.
For more NIOSH information, including respirator recommendations, physcial properties and hygenie information, please see our NIOSH Chemical Hazards Pocket Guide [NPG]. All information in the NPG app is viewable in a native, easily viewed format designed for the iPhone/iPodTouch.

Really helpful for MSDS finder, just type number or name and you'll get your result.
Comes in handy and I've used it more then I thought I would.
I find this to be a great reference app I refer to several times per week. Great job.
However; when writing about how the information shown is less than MSDS, you may want to keep in mind this app is chemical specific, whereas MSDS you can find out the composition of, say Windex for example. Slightly misleading if you ask me.
Excelente app he buscado varios químicos un poco raros y aparece toda la info, sería bueno mejorar el dato de los tlv
Very helpful for being a first responder and a hazmat team member.
This app is very useful. I use it daily in my job hauling hazardous materials
I use this app daily. A must for chemists.
This is a must for the HSSE professional!
Great free app. Would buy.
Goes beyond Niosh pocket guide with more entries and reviewed more often. As an apps, it is portable and readily available to emergency responder community.
Very good app to review the hazards of different Materials.
Love this app.
Awesome to have all this information at your fingertips!!
Easy to use, easy to look up, loads of information at your finger tip!
Great app! Great. During waste shipments
As a chemE stud I must say this app is very useful on the go in my laboratory
Awesome resource for any first responder.
As a Hazardous Materials specialist, this app has proven to extremely useful in an ER incident
This was an invaluable tool for a recent active HazMat incident. Highly recommend!
Awesome app. Love it. Easy to use
Very handy and a lot of info.
Great App when information is needed quickly!
No need for more words
Like having a niosh book on your phone. Excellent for referencing.
Great general app especially for quick reference similar to an MSDS app. Clear and well formatted for an iPad some of the other comments I don't agree with you either know your commodities or you don't. Some of the nay Sayers don't appear to and I wouldn't use this to supplement a chemistry lab...it's an app not a cure all. As stated great information for general purpose use.
Great app for Ems and fire or any emergency health care provider
One of the best free apps out there. Not complete but really good.
Good app. Lots of good info to help when segregating chemicals. Doesnt have all chemicals but a good number.
I love the app
Needs some fine tuning. User should be able to clear history when desires to do so.
I formulate for a fertiliser company and I rarely find what I need on this app. If you do some very generic searches you might find something applicable. Too much time is spent doing so. Google is faster.
Good info. Fast!!
Great reference for our in the field.
Nicely organized with good information. Very useful app.
Very useful I use it every day
Great reference tool for all types of compounds.
Awesome app to have in the rig with you when you get those calls. My primary postings include areas with interstate highways and railroads...... Well worth having.
Love it! Took the OSHA hazmat first responder safety course and I use it often for work. Very well organized and easy to use! Thank you
The great app
Found this app to be very informative and well organized, the answers in the order you would ask. Good job!
Great slacker beater.
Nicely organized and a very useful tool in my safety work.
Needs serious update. MSDS only good for 5 years. Many are too old.
