CCS Book Publications*


The following publications are the product of the sizable database that has developed in the course of serving thousands of industrial, academic, and government facilities. These books will provide invaluable to administrators, purchasers, educators, regulators, and all others involved with the identification and handling of chemicals and chemical products.


  • LIST OF LISTS OF WORLD-WIDE HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS AND POLLUTANTS is the most extensive compilation of regulated hazardous chemicals and environmental pollutants in existence. It includes separate lists of substances, and their selection criteria, that are regulated by more than 40 state, federal, and international agencies. It also contains a master list of all of the regulated materials in both alphabetical and cas number sequence. (535 pgs) 1990


  • CROSS-REFERENCE INDEX OF HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS, SYNONYMS AND CAS REGISTRY NUMBERS contains more than 50,000 synonyms for the hazardous chemicals and environmental pollutants identified in the List of Lists. It represents the most comprehensive source available for properly identifying common names, chemical names, and product names associated with these regulated chemicals. This book provides a ready reference for identifying the CAS number for common and product names that can often "hide" the product's true chemical identity. (579 pgs) 1990


  • INDEX OF HAZARDOUS CONTENTS OF COMMERCIAL PRODUCTS IN SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES lists the hazardous components found in thousands of commercial products used in educational institutions. The book's data includes the chemical identity of the specific hazardous components of a wide variety of common products and, wherever possible, the percentage of the total content that the hazardous component represents. (736 pgs) 1990


  • COMPENDIUM OF HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS IN SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES is an exhaustive encyclopedia covering more than 950 hazardous chemicals found in schools and colleges. This book includes all the data necessary for properly identifying and defining the chemicals and their short- and long-term health hazards. It also includes fire, explosion, and environmental risks for each chemical along with information on its special hazards, i.e., radiation, oxidation, etc. It also includes CAS, UN, DOT, PNS, and RTECS numbers; chemical formulae; boiling, flash, and freezing points; synonyms; and other descriptive information for each chemical. (600 pgs) 1990


  • HANDBOOK OF CHEMICAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL SAFETY IN SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES is a comprehensive, master reference that contains all of the information presented in the five-volume training manuals. It is a total source book for anyone wanting all of the information in a single, easily accessible volume. (500 pgs) 1990


  • HANDBOOK OF CHEMICAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL SAFETY is also a comprehensive, master reference that contains all of the information presented in our five volume training manuals, but customized for non-academic facilities. This three-ring notebook also serves as the source book for our extensive Environmental Safety and Health Workshop and is available at a quantity discount for workshop attendees. (686 pgs) 1995


  • WEB-BASED MUNITION AUTOMATED ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYTICAL CAPABILITIES is a compilation of eight white papers that describe our Web-based database and software capabilities developed for the munition enterprise over the past 12 years, Chemical Compliance Systems, Inc., Lake Hopatcong, NJ, 2011. 



Administrators' Books* designed for all administrators who bear the responsibilities of maintaining safe physical environments within their schools, limiting their school's tort liabilities, and complying with the myriad of environmental laws and regulations.



  • COMPACT SCHOOL AND COLLEGE ADMINISTRATOR'S GUIDE FOR COMPLIANCE WITH FEDERAL AND STATE RIGHT-TO-KNOW REGULATIONS translates the legalese and technical language of current hazardous chemical standards and regulations into meaningful, easily understood language. It provides a simplified, step-by-step program for compliance. This book is a valuable introduction for all concerned with developing a workable, effective compliance program. (107 pgs) 1989


  • WRITTEN HAZARD COMMUNICATION PROGRAM FOR SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES describes all the objectives an educational institution must achieve to insure that its hazardous chemical compliance program is appropriate and adequate. It includes specific examples of written program requirements, MSDS format, hazard assessment criteria, and communication vehicles and formats. This book is essential for the administrator charged with developing and implementing the program. (105 pgs) 1989



EmployeeTraining Manuals* essentially two series of training manuals, with five volumes in each, the first series is entitled Concise Manual of Chemical and Environmental Safety in Schools and Colleges. The second, a simplified condensation of the first, is entitled Pocket Guide to Chemical and Environmental Safety in Schools and Colleges.


  • VOLUME 1: BASIC PRINCIPLES is a comprehensive primer providing individual employees with the basic definitions, concepts, and principles for safely dealing with hazardous materials. It covers both the federal, and the most stringent of the state right-to-know and hazard communication regulations, and provides some useful definitions. It covers MSDSs, labeling, hygiene, protective equipment, storage, fires, explosions, spills, leaks, training programs, and hazardous waste disposal. (167/72 pgs) 1989


  • VOLUME 2: HAZARDOUS CHEMICAL CLASSES provides details about classes of chemical hazards. It explains the routes of absorption, defines and discusses flammables, corrosives, poisons, oxidizers, reactives/explosives, radioactive chemicals, carcinogens, mutagens, and teratogens. It offers an overview of employee and environmental safety with emergency treatments for accidents with chemicals from all hazard classes. (191/114 pgs) 1988


  • VOLUME 3: CHEMICAL INCOMPATIBILITIES. The thrust of this volume is to explain the hazards created by the interaction of chemicals, and chemical products, which are in and of themselves often harmless. It outlines the procedures and routines which can be established to avoid these hazardous situations. (198/108 pgs) 1990


  • VOLUME 4: SAFE CHEMICAL STORAGis a practical, ready reference to the procedures and principles of safely storing chemicals and chemical products in the wide variety of educational settings from science labs, through art and industrial/vocational shops, to office maintenance, and custodial areas. It describes the severe danger created by storing chemicals in alphabetical, or other inappropriate order and keeping aged and deteriorating chemicals. It also suggests a list of highly hazardous chemicals which should not be allowed in any but the most sophisticated research laboratory. (274/142 pgs) 1990


  • VOLUME 5: SAFE CHEMICAL DISPOSAL offers an informative overview of the issues and methods of disposing of hazardous chemical waste. It details the treatments and proper procedures to follow in safely disposing the various classes of hazardous materials. It identifies safe interim storage procedures and describes the hazardous chemical interactions that must be avoided. It also describes mechanisms to minimize costs while insuring regulatory compliance. (400/200 pgs) 1991
