NIOSH Chemical Hazards Pocket Guide for iPhone

ThatsMyStapler announced the release of the NIOSH Chemical Hazards Pocket Guide for Apple’s iPhone and iPod touch.

“There are now several implementations of the NIOSH Pocket Guide (NPG) in various forms available in Apple’s online store, but our application has a pleasing native interface and features we believe users will appreciate the first time they use it” said Steven Farkas, president of ThatsMyStapler.

“The iPhone is very capable of reading many PDFs and HTML pages available on the internet, but we have found that quite often there is a fair bit of panning, pinching and zooming required to read files intended for PC Desktops. Users will find the information and ancillary references in this NPG reformatted to an easy readable format set to the iPhone’s display.”

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Chemical Hazards Pocket Guide provides a concise source of general industrial hygiene information for workers, employers, and occupational health professionals. The industrial hygiene information found in the Pocket Guide assists users to recognize and control occupational chemical hazards. As a fully tested and recommended application by Laboratory Safety personnel, users will find it easy to use with full use of the iPhone’s native look and feel throughout.
