PubChem added chemical hazard and related occupational disease information from Haz-Map®
Posted on June 6, 2022.
PubChem integrated chemical hazard and related occupational disease information for more than 12,000 chemicals from Haz-Map® (https://haz-map.com/). This integration added chemical property information, adverse effects, occupational disease from hazardous agents, use information, and more. Haz-Map® is an occupational health database designed for health and safety professionals and for consumers seeking information about the adverse effects of workplace exposures to chemical and biological agents. The main links in Haz-Map® are between chemicals and occupational diseases. These links have been established using current scientific evidence. Haz-Map information is presented in several sections of the Summary page for a compound. As an example, here are some screenshots of Haz-Map information shown on the Compound Summary page of benzene (https://pubchem.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/compound/benzene).
- Associated Disorders and Diseases (https://pubchem.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/compound/benzene#section=Associated-Disorders-and-Diseases)
In addition to the chemical information on the compound summary, PubChem also created a classification hierarchy (https://pubchem.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/classification/#hid=121), based on adverse effects, agents classes, occupational diseases, etc. This allows users to quickly find compounds with annotations from Haz-Map®.
