The Chemical Hazard Data Commons provides a collaborative space for identifying substances, associating hazards, managing, comparing and assessing lists of chemicals of concern, undertaking alternatives assessments and discussing strategies for advancing safer chemistries.
A project to systematically identify the individual members of chemical groups identified with specific health hazards by scientific bodies (such as lead compounds or organic mercury compounds) in order to improve list based chemical hazard screening and avoid regrettable substitutions. .
A research project to compile lists of chemicals used in plastic packaging, and associated uses and human and environmental health hazards and to analyze substitution options for the most hazardous chemicals.
