The NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards (NPG) is intended as a source of general industrial hygiene information on several hundred chemicals/classes for workers, employers, and occupational health professionals. The NPG does not contain an analysis of all pertinent data, rather it presents key information and data in abbreviated or tabular form for chemicals or substance groupings (e.g. cyanides, fluorides, manganese compounds) that are found in the work environment. The information found in the NPG should help users recognize and control occupational chemical hazards.

The NPG includes the following features:

-New layout for the Chemical Listing section, each chemical arranged in its own table
-Expanded Chemical, Synonym and Trade Name Index
-Conversion factors, CAS, RTECS, and updated DOT ID and Guide Numbers
-NIOSH Recommended Exposure Limits (NIOSH RELs)
-Occupational Safety and Health Administration Permissible Exposure Limits (OSHA PELs)
-NIOSH Immediate Dangerous to Life and Health values (NIOSH IDLHs)
-A physical description of the agent with chemical and physical properties
-Measurement methods
-Personal Protection and Sanitation Recommendations
-Particulate respirator recommendations revised to include Part 84 and remove Part 11
-Information on Health Hazards including route, symptoms, first aid and target organ information
-Revised Appendix E to include OSHA respirator requirements for hazardous substances identified in the preamble to the OSHA Respiratory Protection Standard (29 CFR 1910.134)
