Environmental, hazard, and medical information to facilitate the safe management and handling of chemicals
"The ChemKnowledge System is composed of many databases; only selected databases are accessible. Accessible databases include but are not limited to:
CHRIS (Chemical Hazard Response Information System)
HSDB (Hazardous Substances Data Bank)
IRIS (Integrated Risk Information System)
New Jersey Hazardous Substance Fact Sheets
RTECS (Registry of Toxic Effects of Chemical Substances)
After logging on with your @berkeley.edu email, you can search across databases, or select a specific database."
Assists professionals involved with the many aspects of risk analysis as it pertains to the safety of our food. On FoodRisk.org you will find unique datasets, tutorials, tools, and links to numerous sources of information.
IRIS provides data on human health effects that may result from exposure to substances found in the environment. It includes chronic health hazard assessments for noncarcinogenic effects, including RfD and RfC, and carcinogenicty assessments for lifetime exposures.
Contains data in support of human health risk assessments. It is compiled by Toxicology Excellence for Risk Assessment (TERA) and contains data from CDC/ATSDR, Health Canada, RIVM, U.S. EPA, IARC, NSF International and independent parties offering peer-reviewed risk values. ITER provides comparison charts of international risk assessment information and explains differences in risk values derived by different organizations.
RAIS was designed by the Department of Energy to provide risk assessment tools and information. Among the tools available on this site are: risk-based preliminary remediation goal (PRG) calculations used by risk managers as long-term targets during the analysis and selection of remediation alternatives; databases of toxicity profiles and values; ecological benchmarks to identify chemical concentrations in environmental media that are at or below thresholds for effects to ecological receptors; and a risk assessment glossary.
