The mission of the American Industrial Hygiene Association is to increase the knowledge of industrial and environmental health through interchange and dissemination of information; to bring together persons interested in the various phases of industrial and environmental health; to promote the profession through the encouragement of interest within and cooperation with governmental, industrial, educational, and other professional bodies, and to promote the study, evaluation, and control of environmental stresses arising in or from the work place or its products.
The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) is a member-based organization and community of professionals that advances worker health and safety through education and the development and dissemination of scientific and technical knowledge.
American Board of Toxicology
American College of Toxicology
The mission of the American College of Toxicology is to educate and lead professionals in industry, government and related areas of toxicology by actively promoting the exchange of information and perspectives on the current status of safety assessment and the application of new developments in toxicology.
Cumulative and Aggregate Risk Evaluation System (CARES)
A new, comprehensive, open source software program under development by the American Crop Protection Association (ACPA) to address risk assessment requirements mandated by the 1996 Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA).
The Environmental Fate Data Bases (EFDB) are now available free of charge thanks toSyracuse Research Corporation and support from U.S. EPA, Procter & Gamble, and Du Pont. These online databases identify or provide all of the information necessary for assessing human or environmental exposure to chemicals from occupational and consumer use, environmental contamination, and food consumption. This is a excellent way to identify physical properties (water solubility, vp, log P, pKa, Henry's law constants, etc.), degradation or transport information, and ambient and effluent monitoring data. EFDB is comprised of several interrelated files — DATALOG, BIOLOG, CHEMFATE and BIODEG and was developed by Syracuse Research Corporation under the sponsorship of the EPA since1979.
Environmental Mutagenesis Society
The Environmental Mutagen Society (EMS) is the primary scientific society fostering research on the basic mechanisms of mutagenesis as well as on the application of this knowledge in the field of genetic toxicology.
EXtension TOXicology NETwork (EXTOXNET)
Cooperative effort among various universities to stimulate dialog on toxicology issues, and to make toxicology information available. Includes newsletter, fact sheets, chemical profiles, etc.
Through its international network of branches, ILSI works toward global harmonization and by helping to solve scientific problems that touch people in many countries and regions.
The LifeLine Group
The LifeLine Group is a not for profit organization that is the creator of LifeLine(TM) Software for the Assessment of Cumulative and Aggregate Exposures to pesticides and other chemicals.
A world leader in exposure assessment for chemicals and pesticides
Ohio Society for Risk Analysis
The Ohio Chapter of the Society for Risk Analysis (OSRA) is an officially chartered chapter of the national SRA, and maintain a membership independent of, but in association with, the national organization. They are interested in risk analysis, risk assessment and risk management and represent the academic, commercial, consultative, governmental and industrial sectors.

Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC®)
Society for Risk Analysis
The Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) provides an open forum for all those who are interested in risk analysis. Risk analysis is broadly defined to include risk assessment, risk characterization, risk communication, risk management, and policy relating to risk.
Society of Toxicology
The Society of Toxicology is a professional and scholarly organization of scientists from academic institutions, government, and industry representing the great variety of scientists who practice toxicology in the U.S. and abroad. The Society promotes the acquisition and utilization of knowledge in toxicology, aids in the protection of public health, and facilitates disciplines. The Society has a strong commitment to education in toxicology and to the recruitment of students and new members into the profession.
Also provides access to other international environmental organizations and programs
