From 2007-2015, chemicals and
diseases were continuously reviewed on an almost daily basis as questions
were asked and new
chemicals were added and compared to chemicals already in the database.
Since 2015, all Haz-Map work has been focused on updating, not adding
new chemicals. Information from textbooks is reviewed when new editions are
published. Periodically, all journal articles in selected journals are reviewed.
The last reviews of journal articles were done in 2008, 2011, 2015, and
2018. The selected journals
are: Am J Ind Med, Chest, Int Arch Occup Environ Health, J Occup
Environ Hyg, J Occup Environ Med, Occup Environ Med, and Scand J Work
Environ Health. (Occup Environ Med was dropped in the 2018 review
because copies of articles were not available at the medical library.)
