- The NIOSH Chemical Hazards Pocket Guide (NPG) is intended as a source of general industrial hygiene information on several hundred chemicals/classes for workers, employers, and occupational health professionals.
Clean, Simple DesignWe love the iPhone too, so we made sure this NPG feels like it came with your device and always remains responsive to each touch request. You'll notice that each portion of the NPG for the iPhone is not just a set of canned HTML or PDF files!
Offline AccessNo internet connection required!
Quickly find chemicalsSearch for any chemical quickly and easily using any portion of the name or CAS/RTECs number.
Browse the list of chemicals by synonym, common or registered trade name using the available alphabetic index. Any viewed chemical will appear in the History tab to allow for quick lookup during the next use.

NIOSH Chemical Hazards Pocket Guide for your iPhone
Readable ReferencesThe iPhone is very capable of reading many PDFs and HTML pages available on the internet, but we have found that quite often there is a fair bit of panning, pinching and zooming required to read files intended for PC Desktops. You'll find the ancillary references in this NPG reformatted to an easy readable format set to the iPhone's display.
International ChemicalNeed more information than what's included in the CDC's printed NIOSH Pocket Guide ?
Safety Cards (ICSC)
We've included ICSCs for many of the common chemicals listed. Although they do not have legal status, the ICSC guides contain essential health and safety information in a concise form of standard sentences usable by workers not familiar with the NPG's abbreviations or format.
Emergency ResponseThe ERG from the Department of Transportation is primarily a guide to aid first responders to quickly identify and protect themselves and the general public during an incident's initial response phase. The appropriate guide is presented for each chemical in a readable form on the iPhone for your education and quick reference.
