International Chemical Safety Cards (ICSCs)
The ICSC system is a database of up-to-date information about chemical hazards, and appropriate safety and emergency procedures. In the event of a chemical accident, if time permits and there is no immediate danger, print out two copies of the ICSC data sheets for the chemicals involved. Pass these print-outs to the emergency responders (Emergency Response Team and/or SCDR officers) when they arrive.
The ICSC database is available here.
