Health & Safety Apps for working with Chemical Hazards

Here are some Health and Safety apps for working with Chemical Hazards that we have been recommending to make your work more productive:

Wiser
WISER (Wireless Information System for Emergency Responders) is a mobile application designed to assist first responders in hazardous material incidents. The WISER application extracts content from TOXNET’s Hazardous Substances Data Bank (HSDB), an authoritative, peer-reviewed information resource maintained by the National Library of Medicine. It provides accurate information about hazardous substances, the emergency resources available, and the surrounding environmental conditions to save lives and minimize the impact on the environment and physical property.
