USW Chemical Safety
WINNER: Safety and Health Data Award
The USW Chemical Safety app is designed as an easy and accessible chemical safety reference for workers to access anywhere on their iPhone.
Users can search the New Jersey Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) database by chemical name, DOT number, CAS number, or RTK Substance number to view the entire fact sheet. This includes information on workplace exposure limits, health hazards, workplace controls, personal protective equipment, handling and storage, and emergency information.
Users can also fip through an electronic version of the NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards or search for a chemical by name in the index to view its properties, exposure limits, recommended personal protective equipment and first aid.
For workers who need more information, the final section of the app uses the locator feature to display contact information for the nearest United Steelworkers district office and the nearest OSHA district office.
