The National Library of Medicine's TOXNET service has a rather comprehensive database of peer-reviewed literature on teratogens and mutag ens ( including non-US research and sources.

Hello All,


I=92m wondering if anyone has dealt with training scientists (chemists and biologists) on potential reproductive hazards in the laboratory.


I work for a biotech company, and currently we have 7 pregnant employees (110 employee s total). All of these employees are in the medicinal chemistry group.  ; It has been my experience that the pregnant employees are very cautious and knowle dgeable about the hazards they are working with, however not all of their co-work ers are.


My company would like me to present a training or seminar of some sort that educates and inf orms all laboratory workers of the reproductive hazards they work with.


Has anyone else done this before? Any resources or suggestions?


Thank you.
