Hosted by the National Library of Medicine, Haz-Map was created by Dr. Jay A. Brown as "an occupational toxicology database designed to link jobs to hazardous job tasks which are linked to occupational diseases and their symptoms." Haz-Map users can browse or perform text searches by Hazardous Agents (e.g. Solvents, Mineral Dusts, Pesticides); Occupational Diseases (e.g. Chronic Poison, Interstitial Lung Disease, Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis); or High Risk Jobs (e.g. Food Processing, Printing, Metalworking & Plasticworking). Searches can also be made under the following additional categories: Symptoms, Industries, Non-Occupational Activities, Job Tasks, and Processes. The Haz-Map site includes a Glossary; and a References page with links to online books, databases, and websites.
