You can still help us increase the valuable content in the free Chemical Safety Library (CSL). Just register or log in via the buttons below.

The Pistoia Alliance Chemical Safety Library project is dedicated to sharing previously inaccessible hazardous reaction information in the interest of increased laboratory and personal safety across the chemical industries. Previously, this information may only have been available within the company where the incident occurred. The Pistoia Alliance have now developed a data submission tool to capture, store and search such hazardous reaction information, and it's free to use. You can input events to warn others, and you can check individual incidents or download the entire data set to use within your own systems.

By building a rich data source of hazardous reaction information through this tool, and making it easily accessible we can all improve safety for those scientist carrying out experiments in the lab.

Please help us prevent repetition of dangerous events. If you have questions or feedback about the Chemical Safety Library, email the administrator.

Top Tips

* Supported browsers: Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari (make sure your browser is set to allow pop-ups)
* If you have forgotten your login details please contact csladmin@pistoiaalliance.org
* When submitting a reaction you must set Reporter to your name by searching for and selecting it. Your name and organisation will be hidden to other users and only available to the admin function.
* When submitting a reaction you must create the reaction first, save it, and then on the next screen add the reagents
* After adding reagents to return to the Home screen, if clicking the Home button does not work, select Help, and then Clear cache
* Reagent searching and Synonyms: (Methylene chloride or Dichloromethane!) If you cannot find the reagent with one name, search synonyms before entering manually. Synonyms can be found at ChemSpider, Wikipedia or Google

The Chemical Safety Library project announces RFP to build a hazardous reaction database

The Chemical Safety Library project (CSL) is pleased to release an RFP to build a prototype tool that will be used to enter new hazardous reaction information, store it and enable simple searching on the data held. The vision for the tool, being to make previously unaccessible hazardous reaction information available to the right people at the right time.
