GESTIS-database on hazardous substances for Apple iOS and Android

The GESTIS-Substance Database contains information for the safe handling of hazardous substances and other chemical substances at work, e.g. health effects, necessary protective measures and such in case of danger (incl. First Aid).

Furthermore the user is offered information upon important physical and chemical properties as well as special regulations e.g. GHS classification and labelling according to CLP regulation (pictograms, H phrases, P phrases) and according to the old system (hazard symbols, R phrases). The available information relates to about 8,500 substances. Data are updated immediately after publication of new official regulations or after the issue of new scientific results.

The GESTIS-Substance Database is maintained by the Institut für Arbeitsschutz der Deutschen Gesetzlichen Unfallversicherung (IFA, Institute for Occupational Safety and Health of the German Social Accident Insurance).
