    The purpose of this supplement to the NIOSH Manual of Safety and Health Hazards in the School Science Laboratory is to identify certain potentially hazardous substances that may be in use in many school laboratories and to provide an inventory of these substances so that science instructors may take the initiative in providing for the proper storage, handling, use, and, if warranted, removal of hazardous materials. This document provides lists of explosives, carcinogens, highly toxic, and/or corrosive or irritant chemicals. These lists are not all-inclusive, nor do they address all of the hazards associated with handling chemicals. For example, effects such as central nervous system depression, behavioral modifications, cardiovascular alterations, or allergic reactions which may be associated with exposure to various chemicals have not been addressed. Information on hazards associated with chemicals which have not been addressed, or on chemicals not identified in this document should be obtained from the manufacturer, supplier, local American Chemical Society section members, qualified consultants, or the appropriate government agency.
