Purporting to be a useful summary of data on chemical hazards, this European handbook is not recommended. Important data are often incomplete or absent. For example, under "styrene," chronic effects are "not recorded," despite an extensive literature on this subject. Proper management of hydrofluoric acid burns, a true occupational emergency, is not discussed in sufficient detail and is outdated. Cursory discussions of pre-employment screening and medical surveillance are unsatisfactory. (William B. Patterson, MD, MPH, Health Stop Occupational Health Services, Wilmington, MA 01887)
