Occupational Health Content Integrated into EBSCO’s ExPub Databases

Managing the impact of chemicals on employees in the workplace is now easier for health and safety professionals thanks to a new agreement adding Haz-Map to the ExPub database from EBSCO Publishing. Haz-Map is designed to assist professionals seeking information about the health effects of exposure to chemicals and biological agents in the workplace.

Haz-Map references hundreds of resources; it links jobs and hazardous job tasks with occupational diseases and their symptoms. Haz-Map contains profiles on thousands of chemicals—focusing on uses, adverse effects, and other information needed for exposure assessment. Each chemical is linked to associated industrial processes and nonoccupational activities. Each chemical is also linked to any of the 225 occupational diseases in the database in which a causal relationship has been established.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics for 2007, workers suffered more than 55,000 illnesses related to chemical exposures, and nearly 17,500 chemical-related injuries and illnesses resulted in workers spending days away from work. If recognized, occupational diseases are preventable. To recognize them, health and safety professionals need quick access to comprehensive information. ExPub is a leading provider of up-to-date chemical hazard information for Environmental Health & Safety professionals. The database is designed to help companies and agencies save time and money by providing a single platform for users to find the information they need on demand.
