- Informs public employees about chemical hazards at their workplace so they can work safely with these hazardous substances;
- Helps firefighters, police, and other emergency responders adequately plan for and respond to incidents such as fires, explosions or spills;
- Provides data for monitoring and tracking hazardous substances in the workplace and the environment.
