Risk Control in Research – 2014

It is not safe to assume journals include complete risk control information. Researchers should check multiple sources for information about hazards and include safety sources other than the SDS and published procedures. Examples:ToxNet‘s Hazardous Substances Data Bank and Bretherick’s.
The book  Bretherick’s handbook of reactive chemical hazards, edited by Peter Urben assisted by M.J. Pitt (7th ed., 2007) is available to Pitt users as an e-book. It can be accessed through its library catalog record:
