Training and Scientific Working Groups

ILO (International Labour Organization). Chemical Safety Training Modules
The Training Modules on Chemical Safety have been compiled in order to introduce safe use of chemicals at places of work, to present classification systems for the labelling and transport of dangerous goods, to allow the reading and use of chemical safety cards, to give a basic overview of toxicology and to disseminate information on selected, widely used, hazardous substances. It contains material usable in handouts, demonstrations and exercises, as well as slides, colour transparencies and diskettes containing text files and databases.

ATHAS web site
The ATHAS group was founded by Professor Bernhard Wunderlich, who has worked since 1955 in the field of thermal analysis. The first eight years were spent at Northwestern and Cornell Universities. This was followed by 25 years at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and since 1988 ATHAS is located at The University of Tennessee at Knoxville and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
