There are a number of HHW programs through out the country that have worked
 on addressing this topic.  You may want to browse different sites to see
what they offer.  Two more resources that can be added to what Jim supplied.

There is a lot of information on the web, though not in presentation form, 
much of it generated by household hazardous waste (HHW) programs, some

That's part of what I cover in the book Pick Your Poison which will be rele
ased the first week in March.  My aim is very different from those who just
cover keeping bleach and ammonia apart, labeling products carefully, etc.  
I want householders to understand the political issues behind product
safety regulations and how to do a little research on their products withou
t being fooled by the hype.

And I'll be doing a number of presentations around the country on these kin
ds of subjects.  And some of the data sheets I write on consumer labeling
issues and household paints might be of use.  If you'd like copies, let me 
know where you want them sent.
